Title slide for Making Our Voices Heard: PFDD Forum
This gathering is a unique, valuable opportunity for primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) patient voices to be heard by attendees who will include the FDA, pharmaceutical leaders, researchers, and clinicians. 

We hope this meeting will result in meaningful advances in
drug development that will lead to finding an eventual cure for PSC.
Let's do this together!

A Message from the
PSC Partners Seeking a Cure
Medical Science Liaison Joanne Hatchett
Welcome to Sandi's Circle. Folks who have been in the PSC Partners community remember Sandi Pearlman as a bright, positive light. Her insight, humor, and supportive presence were a real gift to those who knew her.

In this space, we are not only sharing messages from Sandi, but we are also including important messages from others in our community. Joanne Hatchett is encouraging all of us to attend the Making Our Voices Heard: Patient-Focused Drug Development Forum, October 23.

"We are hoping for participation by as many PSC patients, caregivers, and family members as possible," says PSC Partners Medical Science Liaison Joanne Hatchett. "If there is one time we need full participation, this is it, because we want the FDA to experience the commitment and unmet needs of our patient community in order to understand the urgent need for treatments and an eventual cure for PSC."

Due to space limitations, not all submissions can be added, but we invite everyone to use this space to encourage folks in the PSC community.
