  • A brilliant idea

     

    Health Union was started in 2010 by two pharmaceutical industry colleagues and friends, who understood the untapped potential to leverage technology in ways that would enable people living with chronic conditions to learn, connect and share in meaningful and impactful ways.

  • Building relationships

    With this vision, co-founders Tim Armand and Olivier Chateau resigned from GlaxoSmithKline and embarked on a journey to create a scalable, reproducible, online health community model that would have a mutually beneficial impact on patients, caregivers and healthcare industry partners.

    Today, with office space in Center City, Philadelphia, over 250 full-time employees, and a growing portfolio of condition-specific online health communities, we have realized the vision – impacting millions of people and helping them live better.
