Cara Gael O'Regan

Patient Leader

My own experience as a patient with complex chronic illness led me to seek out connection with other patients, which has transformed an otherwise extremely isolating experience into something that has opened up my world. I am the creator, host and producer of In Sickness + In Health, podcast about our relationships with our bodies, and issues at the intersections with chronic illness, disability, healthcare, and mortality. With the podcast and other advocacy efforts, I want to help expand the conversations about healthcare that so rarely include Actual Sick People, and fight for the rights of people living with chronic illness and disabilities.
