patients are our driving force

As a physician, Kristen has seen both tragedies and miracles in her career. As a caregiver and human, she has personally survived the loss of three family members, two to cancer. Now serving as Senior Vice President of Early Clinical Development, Hematology/Oncology & Cell Therapy at Bristol Myers Squibb (BMS), she and her team investigate new ways to transform patients’ lives through science on a daily basis. In this session, we will learn why patients are at the core of everything Kristen and her team do at BMS and hear how unique patient perspectives are helping to inform scientific discoveries. We will leave this session with a renewed understanding of the power of innovative medicines to profoundly change the course of serious human diseases, as well as BMS’ commitment to increase access and involve patients in improving care.
