Patient Advisory Committee Spotlight: Claire Sachs

The Building Trust Learning Network has assembled a distinguished group of patient advocates, patients, caregivers and researchers on patient engagement to advise about how best to continue educating and engaging patients, caregivers and the general public about trust in healthcare. Over the coming months, we will be highlighting some of our members describing their experiences with trust in healthcare.

Claire is a federal policy analyst and patient advocacy blogger whose health history goes back to the early 1980s. Since then, she has managed a raft of serious conditions, both acute and chronic. She has also been a caregiver for both chronically ill and terminally ill family members. A few years ago, she realized that her experience with healthcare could be used to help patients, so she started a blog and started looking for ways to use her skills to make positive changes to the healthcare ecosystem. Claire has a BA in Government from Smith College and an MA in Political Management from George Washington University.
