Patient Advocacy Collaboration Translation (PACT) Initiative

On August 30, Dr. Bruce Bloom presented a Cures Within Reach organizational overview with focus on efforts related to drug repurposing to PACT members.

PACT is a first-of-its-kind, patient-centric initiative between local, regional and national organizations, united by the shared mission of improving biomedical research and health outcomes in the life science community.

Cures Within Reach is proud to be a PACT member.

Donor, Advisor and Friend

Joe is a philosopher, donor, debater, writer, father and grandfather, and the son of a woman who lost her life to cancer at a young age.  He is passionate about health care change, cares a lot about pediatric research, and loves repurposing.  He is the only donor who has ever self-generated data about the reduced cost of care made possible through generic drug repurposing!
