Recruitment for PPMS Patient Advisory Board

August 14, 2017
A pharmaceutical/biotech company will be hosting a small patient and care-partner Medical Advisory Board meeting on Nov. 8-9 in Los Angeles.

This advice will inform and provide personal insight to the pharmaceutical/biotech company’s work in providing information about their product and appropriately engaging with the MS community in the future.
 
The pharmaceutical/biotech company will reimburse the travel expenses of invited participants, and provide an honorarium as thanks for their time and participation.
 
Participants must:
  • Be between the ages of 18 and 55;
  • Have a diagnosis (made by a physician) of PPMS for 3 to 10 years;
  • Not currently be participating in an MS drug clinical trial;
  • Have not previously participated in patient/care-partner Medical Advisory Board(s);
  • Be interested in participating, with or without a care-partner; and
