Hear from patients who share their stories on how clinical trials have impacted their lives and their reflections on why the industry can do more to address challenges with access and diversity.
People are the common ingredient to delivering on our mission of making a difference for patients. Our colleagues who work hard every day despite many challenges and of course the patients we serve, all of whom have unique personal stories and big lives beyond their illness that we must understand in order to better care for them. Hear from Christina DiRenzo as she shares how she Does it With Heart™.
Parexel has named Stacy Hurt as our first Patient Ambassador, further differentiating and reinforcing our commitment to a Patients-First focus. In this consultative role, Stacy will guide the design and delivery of patient-centric clinical trials from inside our organization. The goal: Reduce the burden of clinical trial participation on patients and their families and ensure trials are easier to participate in.
In this video, Stacy explains why this role is important, “I have literally fought for my life to be where I am… This role is the culmination of everything that I’ve been through professionally and personally to bring me to this point.”
Parexel has built a strong culture, one that does everything With HeartTM. Our Patients-First core value and our We Care guiding principle have become central to everything that we do. Equally important is our ability to view our patients as more than their disease or condition, but as a person behind the patient.
Watch Clare Grace, Chief Patient Officer, talk about what it means to find the person behind the patient -- connecting with the personal side of the patients we serve and remembering they are people first with dreams, ambitions and hopes for themselves and their loved ones. By remembering this, we will ultimately deliver better and more empathetic trials for patients in need.
Bold innovations. Even bolder innovators. Countless people counting on us. There has never been a more groundbreaking moment to do what we do – and together, we do it With Heart™.
