Patient Advocate Kristina Figueroa Joins “Ask the Patient” @DPharm & Writes about Healthy Living with Type I Diabetes

  • August 25, 2017

  • We are delighted to welcome Kristina Figueroa who will be a first time participant at DPharm where she will be part of the “Ask the Patients” program. Kristina is a patient advocate for type 1 diabetes and has experienced clinical research. Kristina is also an active writer for the health care community and we wanted to share one of her articles that talks about living a happy healthy life with type 1 diabetes.


    About “Ask the Patient”
    “Ask the Patient” started in 2016 and provides an opportunity for those in the drug development industry at the DPharm conference to meet and speak with patients or patient advocates who’ve experienced a clinical trial. The DPharm community is made up of people from R&D operations, inventors of technologies and services to help patients, including app developers, members from the CRO and sites industry (people who coordinate and conduct trials), FDA, non-profits and academia.

    The “Ask the Patient” program aims to bring patients closer to industry and industry closer to patients, so we can learn from one and other on how to improve the way we currently design and conduct clinical trials, how to find them and communicate the availability of data post trials. DPharm takes place September 7-8, 2017 in Boston.
