Novel among support programs, Magnolia places a high value on face-to-face interaction and socialization with patients.

Magnolia is a unique, hands-on experience that reaches out to patients and their families, giving them a way to address their challenges while offering Eisai employees the opportunity to gain firsthand experience to inform the work they do.
