Patient Leader Hero

Deb, is one of the most passionate driven patient advocates I know. Just being around her makes you feel like anything is possible! Despite having Rheumatoid Arthritis since childhood, she does not let anything stop her from fighting for rights of patients. She recently helped pass state legislation ensuring that biosimilar legislation was signed!  — Therese
