Meet Team Gilead

Over 50 members of Gilead Sciences, Inc. will gather at the Saturday, September 15th Liver Life Walk at Crissy Field in San Francisco. Clad in Gilead T-Shirts, team members will bring much needed awareness and support to millions of Americans living with liver disease.

Gilead is no stranger to community support and has been a longtime champion of American Liver Foundation (ALF) and other health-related causes in the Bay Area. Members of the walk team are excited to expand their passion for raising awareness of liver disease.

For many years now, Gilead Sciences, Inc. has been a generous sponsor of American Liver Foundation events including the annual Salute to Excellence Awards Gala and the Liver Life Walk. We look forward to seeing Team Gilead on walk day all laced up and ready to go!

Pia Goco-Smith of Gilead is eager to point out that a partnership between Gilead and ALF is a positive step for both organizations. Gilead has recruited employees and their friends and families through email newsletters, creative signage and intranet write-ups. Gilead volunteers in charge of promoting events collaborated on a pre-event rally including an internal kickoff event to show their spirit.

Gilead Sciences, Inc. is a research-based biopharmaceutical company that discovers, develops, and commercializes innovative medicines in areas of unmet medical need. Gilead aims to deliver innovative therapeutics that improve the lives of patients suffering from life-threatening diseases worldwide, including treatments for chronic hepatitis B.
