Evidence-Based Advocacy, International Advocacy Relations Among New Topics to be Addressed


(Chicago, IL) – For the fourth consecutive year, Q1 Productions will host the annual Strengthening Patient Advocacy Relations Conference, July 23-24, 2015 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, offering a wide array of discussion and learning opportunities to patient advocacy professionals with new topics from some of the most influential leaders in the space.


As the premier event for pharmaceutical and patient groups, the event will provide a platform for open floor discussion on the most top-of-mind issues and challenges for patient advocacy professionals, such as career goals, the importance of evidenced based advocacy, and evolving communication strategies. Sessions, panel discussions, and workshops will be led by more than two dozen distinguished presenters and leaders in patient advocacy, including Emily Eyres of the Lung Cancer Alliance, Eric Racine of Sanofi, and Grace Whiting of the National Alliance for Caregiving. Conference delegates are encouraged to actively participate in Q&A, share insights, and offer new ideas.


By popular request, this year’s conference will offer more networking opportunities throughout the two day event. In addition to breaks between sessions, structured small group workshops and exchange groups are on the agenda, where conference delegates and speakers can share experiences and insight on topics of their choosing.
