AARDA is pleased to announce a new channel of bringing new information and compelling perspectives on issues of critical importance to people with autoimmune diseases and stakeholders. Through a series of interviews hosted by Autoimmune Association President & CEO Randall Rutta, INSIGHT contributes to our understanding of issues and ideas, best practices, and strategies for change in support of the autoimmune community and society.
INSIGHT launches with an interview with Lee-Anna, a nurse practitioner by training and a person with multiple autoimmune diseases, who is an effective patient advocate in her home state of Tennessee and nationally. Lee-Anna was forced to plan her own funeral at the age of 36 due to the nearly overwhelming challenge of managing her diseases in the current, imperfect health care system. She battled the harmful effects of step therapy, and this battle continues. She is a dedicated advocate who travels the country to encourage changes in access restriction policies that so often prevent autoimmune patients from getting the prescribed medicines and care that are best for them.
