Using her own personal experiences, Fredonia Williams hopes to make a difference in the CONNECT-HF study and in the lives of people recently diagnosed with heart failure. Support for patients with heart failure is extremely important and other patients who are experts by experience are well suited to provide valuable insights to both patients and doctors.
Fredonia is a patient adviser, also known as a Cardi-Yack, in the CONNECT-HF study. Fredonia has had opportunities to interact with heart patients, cardiologists, and researchers. She believes that patient input can help researchers tweak a research question with the ultimate goal of better health for all.
