Patient Expert Scholarship Recipients

2024 Cohort

 The Patient Expert Scholarship offered by GlobalSkin empowers patient leaders through education and support. In 2024, we are pleased to financially support to 14 patient leaders for participation in the EUPATI Patient Expert Training Programme.

During their year-long intensive program, the 2024 Cohort will have the opportunity to connect with their GlobalSkin peers through dedicated WhatsApp groups and meetings led by Board President Marc Yale and Board Director Gaylord Inena wa Inena which will serve as a platform for sharing questions, exchanging study tips, and motivating one another throughout the course of the programme.   

We wish the 2024 Cohort much success on their education journey and graduation in October.
