The FDA listens to acromegaly patients

Today’s podcast covers my conversation with Jill Sisco, president of the Acromegaly Community, about the recent meetings with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the US governmental entity responsible for approving new medications.  Our conversation focuses on the original meeting held in 2021 and a recent listening session where the AC provided additional feedback to the FDA.  These meetings help ensure the FDA considers patient’s experiences, needs, and expectations as they provide drug development guidance to pharmaceutical companies.  You can read the original report here.

Jill also briefly mentioned during our chat the “Faces of Hope” initiative they undertook a few years ago.  Here’s a link to that photographic essayWorth a look!
