Medable is committed to building a diverse group of individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds and circumstances to bring real and actionable perspective to decentralized clinical research. The PAC works to impact clinical trials and direct-to-patient clinical research by offering insights, guidance, and feedback on Medable projects and trials that touch specific disease states.

Joan Venticinque
PAC Member
"As a cancer survivor and patient advocate, I represent the collective views of survivors, patients and family members effected by cancer. As a PAC member, I leverage that experience to ensure research and clinical trials are patient-centered, relevant and reflect the patient's and caregiver's needs and concerns."
Jena Daniels
Medable PAC Advisor
"The Medable PAC provides a unique opportunity for key stakeholders to work together, and contribute their insights and experience to accelerate innovation. By integrating the patient voice within Medable’s digital and hybrid solutions, we offer a human-focused experience."
Richie Kahn
PAC Member
"As a health policy wonk by training, a clinical researcher by choice, and optic atrophy patient advocate by necessity, I came to the Medable PAC to learn from the patient community and incorporate the patient perspective across the clinical trial landscape to ultimately accelerate clinical trial timelines. "
Jennifer McNary
PAC Chair
"As the mother of two young adults with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and a patient advocate, I am excited to chair Medable’s PAC. By including the patient voice, we help to create a better patient experience and increase engagement with difficult-to-populate rare disease trials."
Paul Kidwell
PAC Member
"A family caregiver provides a myriad of physical as well as emotional support as they care for a family member or loved one. Caregivers must assume responsibilities of and for the patient while in parallel understand and address their own needs and their family. Caregivers are also an important conduit between patient and healthcare team; distilling the complexities of medical information while ensuring that the patient voice remain clear and consistent. Caregiving ain’t for sissies!!"
Gaurav Dave

“Firstly, I am living with cancer with an artificial heart valve. Secondly, I am a physician- researcher and clinical trialist by profession. My goal in life is to elevate the intersectionality between my lived experiences as a patient and research know-how as a clinician. I joined Medable PAC to bring both perspectives."
Sumaira Ahmed
PAC Member
"Passionate about utilizing my personal experiences as both a patient and advocate to make positive changes and impact in the rare disease community".
