Patient Advocacy

Today I attended a meeting of the BayBio Patient Advocacy Committee. BayBio is a SF Bay Area life science industry trade group. I sit on their patient advocacy committee, and we’re working to bring "patient advocacy groups," as the ACS and other disease NPOs are known, together with biotech companies. We’re looking for a common ground where the missions of the advocacy groups match with the business interests of life science companies, hopefully to improve health through medical products.
