Patient Advisory Board

The Patient Advisory Board is made up of individuals living with obesity and or who have extensive experience of treatment for obesity and its complications. The PAB members have a strong grasp and appreciation for what SOPHIA is setting out to achieve and can contribute meaningfully and insightfully to the activities of the project, in every work-package. The PAB has two major functions.

  • To provide patient-centric oversight and commentary on all project activities and outputs.
  • To offer specialist advice and input to the project team when required.
