Jackie Zimmerman has been in the patient advocacy game for well over a decade. She began as a blogger after her multiple sclerosis diagnosis and later, began to (over)share her battle with ulcerative colitis (UC). She’s had the privilege of representing patient communities across the country and her patient advocacy game is so strong she’s written eBooks, advocated in Washington and launched various platforms to support patient care. As a chronic illness veteran and former roller derby athlete, she is extremely difficult to knock down—and extremely stubborn about always getting back up. You can connect with her on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
