Case Study: Patient and Caregiver Advisory Board for Biopharma Company

Advisory Board recruitment for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) research platform

The Challenge

Recruit three patients and two caregivers to serve on an advisory board for a research platform that aims to improve care for patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF).

The Solution

Hire a patient leader with IPF to identify, screen and recruit the advisory board members and coordinate their activities for the duration of the 6-month engagement.

The Outcome

Successful recruitment of five qualified candidates who will convene monthly on a virtual basis for a period of six months and who will provide input on key topics such as clinical trial protocols, technology selection for trials, and insights on the challenges of living with IPF on a day to day basis.


WEGO Health’s platform enables on-demand access to a large community of individuals spanning numerous health conditions. Setting up projects, identifying individuals, reviewing areas of expertise, and managing payment is all intuitive. I will continue to use the platform and encourage my clients to do so as well.
