Countdown to Partnerships: Connecting with the patients: The Michael J Fox Foundation

At Partnerships, we strive on a yearly basis to connect to the reason why we work in the Pharma industry: to change the lives of the patients.  This year, we've invited the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research to join us.  Deborah W. Brooks, Co-Founder and Executive Vice Chairman of this foundation will join us Monday night to bring in a new perspective of connecting with patients and encouraging them to follow through on their intentions to become involved in clinical trials.  Deborah herself has volunteered particiapte in a Parkinsons clinical trial the Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative.  Join us 4:30PM on Monday, April 22 for this opening keynote session!

If you'd like a teaser for this session, our Inside Outsoucing Podcast Series recently interviewed Sohini Chowdhury the Senior Vice President for Research Partnerships at the Michael J Fox Foundation. Listen to it here.
