Patient Research Advocate


I am a Patient Research Advocate at the Breathe Chicago Center©. My area of concentration is the PELICAN study. Since I have Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), this gives me the added expertise needed to reach out to others needing help with this disease. I firmly believe that patients should have the latest information available. I enjoy learning new techniques and how they affect people who are in need of the services offered.
