About the Event
Join the National Health Council (NHC) for its 2024 Science of Patient Engagement Symposium on May 8 & 9, 2024. Taking place at the historic National Press Club in Washington, DC, the theme for this year is  Patient Experiences through their Lifespan.

Meaningful patient engagement is when patients are recognized as equal partners and integrated in the development phases of science, research, and drug regulation. Meaningful engagement of patients in different stages of the lifespan has not been fully examined. Sessions will explore the science of patient engagement from the lenses of pediatric, young adult, adult, and the aging populations.

The Science of Patient Engagement Symposium is a two-day meeting held annually to explore how the science of patient engagement is evolving and contributing new evidence. Research leaders share – with a broad scientific audience – their experiences, accomplishments, best practices, and resulting impacts on medicine and science regarding patient centricity. You can view the 2023 Symposium summary here and the 2022 Symposium summary here.

Attending the 2024 Science of Patient Engagement Symposium will enable you to:

  1. Understand the applicability of patient engagement research into action and practice across the lifespan.
  2. Illustrate the importance of meaningful patient engagement of diverse populations and generations into research and science.
  3. Identify synergistic research opportunities between scientists and patient advocacy groups.
  4. Exchange innovative and thought-provoking research ideas and agendas.
