Claire Sachs

Patient Leader

With nearly 35 years as a chronically ill patient, a professional background in legislative analysis, and a family with a health executive father and chronically (them terminally) ill mother, I decided to put my knowledge of our messy healthcare system to work. The Patient Advocate’s Chronicle is a patient-centric resource helping people with a chronic or autoimmune condition navigate both their conditions and our healthcare system. Our philosophy is that the only way forward is through. We need to learn how to advocate for ourselves and build relationships with sometimes uneasy partners to manage our chronic lives. I can help!
