[BONUS] Entrepreneurial Advocacy on the Spectrum With Dr. Robyn Schlicher
In today’s whirlwind bonus episode, I proudly welcome Dr. Robyn Schlicher, mental health advocate and Vice President of Business Development at Pear Bio. Robyn’s backstory is profoundly personal and evocative of a young person trying to make sense of their life living on the autism spectrum and coping with the fundamentals of mania, euphoria, depression, and entrepreneurialism. Her role in the healthcare universe is that of a sherpa assisting pharma and providers in ensuring the drugs actually work first before getting to patients. She’s a passionate, no-BS advocate who talks fast, so prepare for an invigorating rollercoaster ride of wry wit and frenetic authenticity.
