DENVER, July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Merck, the second-largest pharmaceutical company in the world with a long, rich history in working to improve people's health and well-being around the globe, will share how it is creating a unifying sense of culture and company brand following the merger of Merck and Schering-Plough with help from NewsGator.
