Ilana Jacqueline

Ilana Jacqueline is a speaker, author, patient, and advocacy strategist whose journey to a rare disease diagnosis forced her to face a lifetime of medical gaslighting. While her personal experience as a patient has lent her compassion for what all women are subject to in the exam room, it is her experience as a patient advocate that opened her eyes to the reality that no matter how rare or common the condition may be, it often takes women longer to be heard by the medical community. She is the author of Surviving and Thriving with an Invisible Chronic Illness and an educator for patients in all stages of their journey on how to have meaningful and collaborative conversations with their care teams. Her work across social media, particularly in the area of medical gaslighting, has helped to empower patients to be an active participant in their own care.
