Welcome to our summer series. You probably noticed a change in the intro right? Lol. We believe summer should be full of fun, good vibes, and great tunes!
Was Michael A founded Rare Patient Voice in 2013 to give patients and family caregivers with rare diseases, the opportunity to voice their opinions and research studies. This year the company celebrates its 10th anniversary. Rare Patient Voice has now conducted thousands of studies and rewarding patients and family caregivers with over $10 million dollars for their participation. Many have been recruited in person by West himself at patient events and through a robust referral program with patient advocacy and support groups. Rare Patient Voice now covers non-rare as well as rare diseases and conditions and has expanded from the United States to Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia, and New Zealand
Before launching Rare Patient Voice, Wes worked for healthcare market research firm Cantar health. He previously was a brand manager in marketing research manager at McCormick, the spice Company, and General Mills, working on Wheaties, total and kix cereals. He has a BA from the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from the University of Chicago.
I like to think of Wes, regardless of all his many accolades, as just another good dude and rare patient advocate. He is helping the community through one research study at a time.
You can find Wes and the RPV team through these social media platforms:
