Understanding the Evolving Perspectives of Patient Advocacy Groups and Their Role in Drug Development


COVANCE and the RARE ADVOCACY MOVEMENT (RAM) have partnered to gain a better understanding of the evolving perspectives of patient advocacy groups and PAG's roles in the drug development continuum
In order to generate data to inform public discussions and to find ways to better embed the critical pulse of the patient throughout the continuum, we are asking all Patient Advocacy Leaders to complete the following survey.  The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
Preliminary Results
