Working with healthcare organizations to
build programs that empower and educate patients.

How my experience helps your team

I'm Lilly Stairs, Founder and Principal at Patient Authentic.

I'm a patient, an advocate, and an operator.

I've helped build healthcare startups from the ground up, worked with several of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies, and currently serve as interim CEO of a major patient advocacy non-profit.

I care deeply about the future of healthcare and believe in the power of the patient voice to move the world.

And I’m here to help you build a movement.
