H4B Boston

Welcome to H4B Boston

H4B Boston is a boutique-like, healthcare communications agency that sees high science differently. We see faces, not just data. Human needs, not just numbers. This is what we call Human Purpose. Our expertise in rare diseases and rare cancers realizes the promise of high science by thoughtfully navigating the commercialization process to create meaningful change and solutions for underserved patients.

Accelerated launch of a novel oncology treatment

Multiple myeloma (MM)

Within a remarkably tight schedule, H4B Boston answered with focused collaboration with clients, drove co-creation at every level, dug deep for smart, strategic insights, and displayed the grit to face down every obstacle.

Driving awareness of an ultra-rare disease

Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP)

With only 900 global cases, FOP is one of the world’s rarest diseases. H4B Boston created the “GO FEET FIRST” multichannel awareness campaign to increase education and awareness of FOP with common signs and symptoms. Little feet can mean so much.

Improving outcomes with data-driven patient-centricity

Pompe disease 

When Pompe is misdiagnosed, as it often is, it leaves patients without the treatment they need. Through education, advocacy partnerships, and advanced analytics, H4B Boston continues to strive with our clients to increase the rate of diagnosis, grow new markets, and give patients more chances to live their lives to the fullest.

“Empathy is creativity in motion.” - Kam Redlawsk, artist

We are proud to showcase the work of Kam Redlawsk on our walls at H4B Boston. Kam illustrates moments from her life living with a rare disease known as GNE myopathy since the age of 20. Kam’s moving portrayals serve to connect us personally to the struggles, triumphs, and journeys of the rare disease community. Every day, Kam’s art fuels our passion for human purpose and the promise of high science to give patients the answers they deserve.
