Amicus Therapeutics has a great passion for the diseases they study, and for the patients that they serve. They have a patient advocacy program, where they aid and assist both patients and their families every step of the way throughout the disease process. This is a feather in Amicus Therapeutics’ cap, showing that their range of compassion extends far beyond the research process. These are people who really do care, and see their patients as true people, not just as research.
The staff of Amicus Therapeutics is available to assist in all aspects of the disease experience, both great and small, and to be true advocates for patients and their families, wherever and whenever the need arises.
Amicus Therapeutics has even put together a patient advisory board, which consists of members of patients going through the disease experience, who are well informed, and wish to collectively share their experience with other patients regarding any aspects of the disease experience. This is a great communication tool, also furthering knowledge and research of both Amicus Therapeutics and the patients and their families.
