Patient Advocacy Council
The PharmaKon LLC.

The Patient Advocacy Council represents a group of individuals committed to engaging with one another, sharing ideas and expanding the engagement of patient diversity in clinical trials.  Council members bring real life experience as former Veterans, cancer survivors, LGBTQ, minorities, and residents of rural/marginalized communities.  

Our Patient Advocacy Council gives patients a seat at the table.  Members support and advise on health care needs. They are experienced patient voices with a focus on helping those with a specific condition or need.
