Out with the Old, In with the New

As most of you who have been following along already know, I'm a Gilenya Guide, or patient speaker for Novartis. I travel around the country and share my story with groups of multiple sclerosis patients to raise awareness of the disease and treatments available. I have agreed not to blog those experiences in detail, but I do like to share dates/places where I'll be speaking.

Out with the old

Last year was a great year for patient advocacy! I spoke around the country at Novartis events as well as non-Novartis events, advocating for those with MS as well as ePatients, clinical trial patients, and just patients in general.

It was a great start to what I hope will become an even bigger crusade in 2013.
