Patients and caregivers are
expert changemakers

Jerry Matczak saw patient and caregivers as people with crucial expertise in living with chronic conditions or surviving serious health issues. He believed they have a critical role in driving innovation and finding solutions to problems in health care. He listened to patients. And he worked in partnership with them to bring new ideas into health care, in a framework of mutual respect and co-creation. Health care needs more people like Jerry. Will you join us? Will you #BeLikeJerry?
