About

Patients Rising was formed to stand up for patients. To advocate for their rights. To fight for their access to the medications they need and deserve. And to tell the truth about health care.

This is why we fight for access to vital therapies and services for patients with life-threatening and chronic diseases.  It is therefore essential to create a balanced dialogue in the national conversation around these issues.    

Our programming includes:  The Daily RiseVoices of Value: Speak UpPatients Rising University and commentary at PatientsRising.org. This is how we educate, advocate and communicate the importance of access to essential treatments and diagnostics. We focus on ensuring the authentic patient voice is heard, access to new therapies is paramount and the pipeline of progress is not threatened. 

Patients Rising is a national 501c3 organization based in Washington, DC. Combined with our 501c4 partner organization, Patients Rising NOW -- we are extending our content presence in national media and targeting our programming to educate patients and expand our impact on their behalf.  

Patients Rising believes that connection is at the core of everything we do – and this can best occur online and in-person at local, state, and global conferences, roundtable discussions, workshops, podcasts, webinars and webcasts. 

We are committed to directly engaging the patient community, along with physicians, health policy experts and allied healthcare professions to develop realistic, solution-oriented discussions so those impacted with cancer and other critical medical challenges will amplify our collective voice and create lasting impact on the future of heath care in the United States and ultimately, around the world.
