Brian Duggan is the Founder of Citizen Science for Health, a non-profit dedicated to increasing patient empowerment and transforming medical research. This effort has grown out of his personal experience participating in a number of clinical trials. While he has found that these trials can provide access to new data and insights, the slow pace of medical research—especially in key areas like neurology—can also lead to frustration. Brian is also the founder of Building Alliances where he has worked for 20+ years to create positive partnerships for non-profits, events, and media companies in areas spanning health, sustainability, marketing and technology. His past and current clients include Harvard Business School Publishing, Fast Company, John Battelle’s NewCo Shift Forum, Business Insider, Eco Expo, West Coast Green, Body & Soul, the 4A's, Whole Life Expo, and Eventbase, among many others.
