Impact 2020 Twitter Chat: Patient Advocacy for the Future
Tuesday, April 15 2014
5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Location: #Impact2020 & @MassBio on Twitter or TweetChat
MassBio launched Impact 2020: Advancing Massachusetts in the Life Sciences for Patients on April 3, 2014. The report lays a path forward for the future of life sciences in Massachusetts, and at the heart of it all is the patient.
Patients and patient advocates have historically played a very important role in shaping the biotechnology industry and its innovative therapies. In the future, as the healthcare system undergoes a major shift, patients will play an even more critical role.
To ensure innovative, valuable therapies make it to patients as Massachusetts and the nation implement healthcare cost containment measures, it is critical that the patient voice is not only heard, but amplified.
