Partners and Supporters
Collective action is the cornerstone of how Patients Rising addresses the education and advocacy needs of patients seeking access to quality care for a serious disease or illness. We work in partnership with individuals, non-profit organizations, professional societies, and corporate supporters that are raising awareness, speaking out for patients and advocating for policies that align with Patients Rising’s founding Mission and Vision.
Our History of Partnership and Support
Founded in 2015, Patients Rising is a Washington, DC-based 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that works to fill a void in the debate over patient access to quality medical care.
Our partners and supporters enhance our ability to help patients across disease states, strengthen our conversations with stakeholders in all sectors of the healthcare system – patients, caregivers, health professionals, researchers, payers, innovators, regulators and legislators – and create the multiplier effect so the voices of patients will be heard.
Our partners and supporters are valued members of the Patients Rising community. Their generous intellectual, financial and in-kind support allowed Patients Rising to open its doors in 2015 and continues to help us advocate for sensible approaches that will ensure patients – regardless of who they are and where they live – have access to the right treatment, right now.
