"With the recent FDA market clearance and commercialization of DABRA, having a communications program in place to tell the Ra Medical Systems story to the medical and investment community is of the utmost importance," said Dean Irwrin, CEO, Ra Medical Systems. "The implementation of a comprehensive and strategic communications program will highlight our core strengths and demonstrate what differentiates us from the other players in the market.
