Why do we partner with the community?

We strive to blend the unique expertise of our team with the lived experiences of patients and families affected by serious illness to produce research that is as responsive as it is rigorous. Our work is enhanced by active engagement of and partnership with patients, care partners, and community-based organizations who help guide the design and conduct of our studies.
