Jessica Sand has managed the Patient and Clinician Engagement (PaCE) program for the past five years. PaCE is funded through a PCORI Eugene Washington Engagement Award, and it has trained more than 200 patients, clinicians, and researchers about patient engagement in primary care research. Through this project, she has given presentations in professional, academic, and community settings, and has developed and delivered curricula and a two-hour workshop on patient engagement in research. Sand became involved in the Ambassador program to further knowledge and skills in patient-centered outcomes research, and to disseminate knowledge and skills to a broader audience.
