FDA Accepting Applications for the Patient Engagement Collaborative


The FDA announced the call for applications for new members of the Patient Engagement Collaborative (PEC). The PEC is a group of patient organizations and individual representatives who discuss ways to enhance patient engagement. The following individuals are encouraged to apply:

  • Patients who have personal disease experience.
  • Caregivers who have personal experience supporting someone with a health condition (e.g., a parent, child, partner, family member or friend).
  • Representatives from patient groups who have direct or indirect disease experience.

Applications will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. eastern time on October 19, 2022 or until 75 applications are received, whichever happens first. Interested candidates are encouraged to apply early. PEC members are expected to serve for two years.
