patient advocacy alliance goals
Join the Alliance
Officially launched in April of 2021, the Georgia Bio Patient Advocacy Alliance is the only group of its kind in Georgia. The life sciences industry in Georgia is committed to working with and for the patient community to provide innovative treatments and therapies while seeking the input of the patients themselves. This new alliance brings industry and the patient community together, offering quarterly roundtable discussions, a featured Patient Summit each Fall, and this new webpage to highlight our amazing patient groups and provide helpful resources for them, their allies, physicians, and those seeking to learn more.
Not a Georgia Bio member? No problem! Complimentary membership is offered to non-profit patient groups who join the alliance. Contact Kristina Forbes at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Patient's Corner
The Patient's Corner is the official blog of the Georgia Bio Patient Advocacy Alliance, allowing our staff, co-chairs, and members to highlight our various patient groups and their advocacy efforts. As we continue to build out this page, we will feature helpful advocacy tips, guides on what patients want you to know about chronic illness, patient stories, and other resources for alliance members.
Our first blog post is now live and features Patient Advocacy Alliance member Cory Lewis. Cory is the Director of the Red Moon Project, an organization aimed at increasing awareness about Sickle Cell Disease. Follow the link below to read Cory's story, Living With Chronic Illness: What You Should Know, and learn more about the Red Moon Project.
