Patricia Enright Kaplan is responsible for sharing the compelling story of the Reagan-Udall Foundation for the FDA. The chance to support patients, and physicians while advancing regulatory science and public health drew her to the Foundation.
She comes from a background in health and medical marketing and communications, including support for federal health agencies, industry, and non-profit organizations with an emphasis on message development, stakeholder engagement, and media relations. She has spent over twenty years translating scientific information for lay audiences, and teaching them to eat better, stop smoking, get screened, take their meds and talk to their doctors. Most recently she supported strategic program development for the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research and provided media and communications support to the FDA Center for Tobacco Products. She is an award-winning communications professional and holds an BA in English and a Minor in Legal Studies from Trinity College in Hartford, CT.
