|WASHINGTON, D.C. — The bipartisan advocacy organization Patients For Affordable Drugs, and its sister organization Patients For Affordable Drugs Now, today named Audrey Baker as its communications director. Audrey will take leadership of overall communications, including media relations. Audrey has worked in advocacy communications for over five years, most recently at the communications firm M+R, where she led media strategy for reproductive rights, criminal justice, housing, food advocacy, and humanitarian campaigns.
“Audrey’s sharp communications skills, storytelling, and advocacy experience will be pivotal to our efforts to achieve meaningful drug pricing reform,” said Sheila McLean, executive director of Patients For Affordable Drugs and Patients For Affordable Drugs Now.
In addition to her communications and media relations experience, Audrey has worked as an organizer for local, state, and federal campaigns.
“With Congress and the White House turning to drug pricing legislation, now is the time to ramp up our advocacy efforts to win the fight for affordable drugs,” McLean added.
Patients For Affordable Drugs is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. It is the only independent national patient organization focused exclusively on policy changes to lower prescription drug prices. Patients For Affordable Drugs Now is a not-for-profit 501(c)(4) organization focused on advancing policies to lower drug prices. Both are independent and bipartisan and neither accepts funding from any organizations that profit from the development or distribution of prescription drugs.
