Member since: September 2016

Candace has been a key champion for patient-oriented research for many years. She advocates for improvements to design of the health system.  Candace lives with two potentially life-ending conditions; lung cancer and idiopathic pancreatitis, both of which are highly stigmatized and under-researched related to their burden on the patient and the health system.  It is this experience that grounds her belief that health research must focus on health outcomes based on issues that are clearly identified by patients and families.  

Candace is the co-chair of the SCPOR Patient & Family Advisory Council.
