Very interactive, high-level discussions and relevant agenda topics made this congress valuable time spent

–Director, Advocacy and Alliance Development, GSK

The uncertainty and change in our healthcare system requires patient advocacy professionals to remain up to date on policies and issues that impact patient care. Attending the Summit provides the opportunity to learn about key issues that may impact patient advocacy, as well as network with other advocacy professionals

– Director Corporate Affairs, Tesaro Bio

Patient Advocacy Summit is an important opportunity to share best practices and learn from other who share the same passion and commitment to patients. Each year I have learned golden nuggets that I could take and apply immediately to my work.

– President and CEO, Allergy & Asthma Network

We often ask patient advocacy group to collaborate, but do not challenge ourselves to do the same. The Summit is a wonderful opportunity for us to break down silos, share best practice and identify opportunities to do more for the patients we serve

– Global Director, Oncology Patient Group Relations, AstraZeneca
