Patients Rising NOW is the 501c4 arm of Patients Rising. Through the Patients Rising NOW we will enhance and expand our impact on behalf of patients.
Patients Rising was launched to fight for access to vital therapies and services for patients with life-threatening diseases. We will educate, advocate and communicate the importance of access to essential treatments and diagnostics. We will be focused on ensuring that our patient’s voice, as patients, is heard, access to new therapies is paramount, and the pipeline of progress is not threatened.
Patients Rising NOW aims to create one united patient voice, armed with the right information and engaged to raise that voice for changes to the insurance and regulatory barriers standing in the way of the vital treatments they need today. Empowered patients, armed with the right information, at the right time will take the right and timely political action to breakdown the barriers to access and other hurdles to care we as patients are fighting.
At Patients Rising we believe that at the core of everything we do is connection – and this connection can occur at virtual and in-person local, state, and global conferences, roundtable discussions, workshops, podcasts, webinars and webcasts.
We are committed to engaging other patients, caregivers, physicians, health policy experts and allied healthcare professions to elicit realistic, solution-oriented discussions around these issues so that those impacted with cancer and other critical medical issues can amplify our collective voice and create lasting impact on the future of heath care in the United States and ultimately, around the world.
