The Patient's View with Joan C. Finnegan, a Cystic Fibrosis Patient Advocate
Episode one of the Phacilitate Leaders World 2020 super plenary series starts with Joan C. Finnegan, a cystic fibrosis patient advocate, giving the patient's view
The first super plenary interview at Phacilitate Leaders World centred on the most important of all the stakeholders in advanced therapies. The patient.

Joan C. Finnegan is a cystic fibrosis patient and has been a patient advocate for decades, working with the CF Foundation to fight for access to treatments and, now, a cure.

Joan's outlook on her life is not only positive but inspiring, despite the losses that she and her family have experienced. In this interview, she describes the patient experience and implores the industry to 'REPRESENT THE PATIENT' throughout the drug development process. She also discusses the CF Foundation's 'path to a cure' initiative, something that Joan has dreamed of her whole life.
