Enhance techniques to mitigate health inequity, expand patient access & optimize the remote setting, while demonstrating value to leadership

This event equips advocacy leaders with tools to address healthcare inequity in drug development, patient access and affordability. Through collaborative sessions and discussions, learn to innovate and imagine new ways to empower the patient and organizations serving them, while demonstrating the commercial impact of patient advocacy operations.

The dynamic Q1 Productions virtual platform fosters a sense of collaboration. Thoughtfully designed networking features connect you with your peers beyond the capabilities of a Zoom meeting. Customize your experience and address your unique concerns during live Q&A after each session. Our commitment to industry perspectives keeps the program focused on what matters and dynamic session formats make it fun. Learning will take place in three half-day modules to maximize retention and engagement.
