The patient is stage center at Erudita Biotechnical LLC. Founder C Latham Mitchell believes that our sector won't understand what its business is about unless our people have experience directly connecting with the patient. "Unfortunately, clinicians who have ample practice experience are too few and far between in our world," says Mitchell. "Without trying to grapple with the day-to-day realities of those who actually have the conditions we're striving to create treatments (or disease management strategies) for, we run the risk of really missing the mark."  Others agree: DIA launched its ground-breaking Patient Fellowship Program at the annual meeting in June 2011 and will expand activities in 2012. Featured were representatives from 15 patient groups and a new track of 9 patient-focused sessions, one of which was the "Growing Thru Giving" presentation Mitchell took part in on employee volunteerism & patient advocacy. Upshot: We are delighted to announce our 2012 Patient Advocacy Spotlight Organization, the National Alopecia Areata Foundation  http://www.naaf.org/site/PageServer.
