Cancer went from being a random disease to something very personal when her cousin’s husband was diagnosed with mesothelioma of the lungs. After watching her cousin’s family endure this hopeless cancer and seeing it first hand while they lived with her when seeking treatment in Pennsylvania, her work in patient advocacy and the lung cancer community took on new meaning.
Sandra came to us after a 32-year career in industry where she had a unique blend of experiences that included sales, marketing and medical affairs. As part of Merck’s Global Medical Affairs team, she delivered an educational strategy for immunotherapy of cancer and lung cancer and executed the strategy through grant support of educational initiatives for physicians, patients and caregivers. She managed corporate relations and charitable giving with national professional societies and advocacy groups, such as ours, on behalf of Merck Oncology. Sandra holds a B.S. in Biomedical Science from Texas A&M University and a Master’s in Business Administration – Health Services Management from the University of Dallas where she graduated with highest honors.
