Myelin Repair Foundation (MRF) President, Scott Johnson, will be one of the speakers at the BIL:PIL 2009 Conference. He’ll be discussing our collaborative research model and our approach to finding a medical treatment for multiple sclerosis.
The MRF wants to contribute more to BIL:PIL than Scott’s talk on how the MRF is accelerating research and the delivery of patient treatments. We want to remind the BIL/PIL conference attendees that the new ideas they are exploring in health and health care, in the end, will matter more to patients than anyone else. Especially those living with chronic diseases for which there are few, if any, effective treatments or cures.
So we had an idea. We want to create and handout P-Cards — Patient Cards — one card to each attendee that shows information about an individual person: his or her medical conditions, symptoms, medications or treatments (if there are any) and a photo. We hope these cards will motivate attendees to share their most thoughtful ideas for how together we can promote innovation in health and health care.
But we can’t make P-cards without your help! Send us your suggestions of who should be on a P-card – it can be you or someone you know (with their permission). We are aiming to create 300 of these P-cards by BIL:PIL’s launch at the end of October.
Submit your information via this Google Form. Then email your photo to us at email@example.com. We will use your info to create a customized P-Card with your information and put your card in the hands of someone at BIL:PIL.
