Questions/Topics of Discussion
How do you define "Patient-Centricity?"
Tell us more about the three pillars of Sanofi's Patient-Centric Strategy. How do you get patients' input? Do you have any patient advocates on your team who are not physicians but who have worked extensively with patients?
Are we talking only about patient-centricity in the context of research & development? What about corporate and marketing communications?
What's the most difficult hurdle for pharma to overcome to be truly patient-centric?
Why did Sanofi create the role of "Chief Patient Officer?" How is it different from "Chief Medical Officer?" What do you do as Sanofi's Chief Patient Officer? Can you relate a case study which demonstrates how you implemented your strategy?
What other pharmaceutical companies have Chief Patient Officers? Do they all have similar roles? Will all pharma companies follow?

Psalm 4:8 NIV
I lie down and sleep in peace,
for the Omnipresent Omniscient and Omnipotent I AM
makes me dwell in safety.
"Light banishes all darkness in my relationships. Where there has been discord I activate the Light of this Divine Attribute right now. The Light of Peace radiates all around me and in all of my relationships. Peace reigns in my world. This sequence of three letters falls down into my subconscious mind and awakens in me a new sense of being. This Light projects new revelations into my conscious awareness. I see things differently. Where opposition appeared, unity now prevails. I now remember that “If God is for me, there can be none against me.” ~ Maisha Hazzard in Elements of Creation
