About the Summit

BIO is pleased to announce its seventh annual Patient and Health Advocacy Summit held on October 25-26, 2018 at the Park Hyatt hotel in Washington, DC. This event brings together patient advocacy organizations, academia, regulators, biotechnology industry, and other stakeholders for two days of robust programming to discuss timely policy issues and share best practices. The Summit also provides invaluable networking opportunities to advance partnership among stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem. Last year, the Summit convened over 320 attendees from more than 200 different organizations.


The BIO Patient & Health Advocacy Summit is a very powerful intersection of pharma, biotech, and advocacy. The exchange of challenges, ideas, concerns, and opportunities at this BIO conferences is a very powerful force in refining the perspectives, thinking, and impacting future plans of those attending. The setting is modest in size allowing not just for superficial networking, rather there is time and space for in depth conversation and follow-up.
