Patients Rising is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support and education to people with chronic and life-threatening illnesses. We work with patients to advocate for access to the treatments, innovations and care they need. Programming includes: The Daily Rise; Voices of Value: Speak Up events and video, Patients Rising University publications and workshops. This is how they educate, advocate and communicate the importance of access to essential treatments and diagnostics.
Patients Rising University (PRU) is a free online educational program developed to help patients and caregivers build self-advocacy skills, learn about their conditions, navigate healthcare coverage, and ultimately get access to the best care and treatment possible. PRU will be producing several webinars a year on themes like: Managing your Chronic Illness, Controlling the Costs of Care, Participation in Clinical Trials, Understanding Biosimilars, and more.
