September 17–18, 2019, marked the 10th annual DPharm conference, held in Boston, Massachusetts. This conference is one of my favorites! I always leave with my cup filled to the brim with excitement, hope, and optimism for the future of clinical trials. This year was certainly no exception.
The conference “kicked” off with Alyssa Epstein, a Radio City Music Hall Rockette and a breast cancer survivor. After gracing us with a beautifully choreographed routine, she shared her story and her patient journey. Many of the keys to her success as a Rockette were the very same for her recovery:
- Stand on your own two feet so that you can better support others;
- Have each other's backs when you fall;
- Prepare for the unexpected, but keep going; and my favorite,
- Success happens when "I" becomes "We."
