International Foundation for Autoimmune & Autoinflammatory Arthritis – Co-Founder
WEGO Health – Patient Leader
American College of Rheumatology – Patient Advocate
Tami Brown has been involved with PCORI since its inception, as a Merit Reviewer, then a Mentor, and, for the past two years, as an Ambassador. She is thrilled to be a part of the PCORI family and continue its mission. Brown cofounded the International Foundation for Autoimmune & Autoinflammatory Arthritis, which helps those affected by autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases with arthritis as a major clinical component. The foundation uses the strength of patient voices to impact education, advocacy, and research. It also implements a “global network” philosophy in all it does by collaborating with other stakeholders. The foundation learns a great deal from PCORI, and Brown continues to put those lessons to use. The notion that we are all part of one big global network and that we all need to be sharing our information and resources in order to improve healthcare and research for the future is what motivated her to become a PCORI Ambassador.
