Lauren Coye

Host:  Hildy Grossman with Jordan Rich, co-host

Guests: Cheryl Davis, of Red Thred Solutions; Lauren Coye, Patient and Patient Advocate

What often goes unheard in medical situations is the patient’s voice. Our guests have a lot to say about this matter. 

Cheryl Davis has extensive experience in patient advocacy in the pharmaceutical industry. Now she aids biopharma, biotech and patient advocacy organizations in improving their practices, communications, and partnerships for better healthcare outcomes. She discusses how listening to patients’ voices shows three general types of patients and their behaviors in medical circumstances.  

What does it mean to have a voice? Lauren Coye describes her experience of having been diagnosed with lung cancer at age twenty-four after years of symptoms. Her resilience and determination are an inspiration.
