You’re Invited! We hope you’ll join us for our next Empowered #patientchat on Friday, March 22nd as we discuss and share how to apply patient advocacy initiatives to you patient journey with special guest Seth Rotberg (@Srotberg15).

Seth is a rare disease advocate and motivational speaker who is passionate about bringing his personal experience to better support the health community. He has done over 21 talks, with the most notable ones being at TEDxNatick and Global Genes Patient Advocacy Summit. Seth’s passion is driven by his mother’s 17 year battle with the rare, genetic disease known as Huntington’s Disease (HD). At the age of 20, Seth also tested positive for the disease and is a gene carrier. He is an active member of the HD community and currently sits on the Board of Trustees for the Huntington’s Disease Youth Organization (HDYO).

Seth also has a masters in nonprofit management from DePaul University and currently resides in Washington, D.C.
