Trishna's History of Caregiving
Trishna was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) at 28 years old. She has been the media spokesperson for various pharma and MS charity projects and regularly contributes to several BBC radio stations.
She has acted as an informal caregiver for her sister for several years. Trishna has recently become a caregiver for her father as he recovers from intermediate-grade prostate cancer.
"I was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS in 2008, aged 28. I also live with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and chronic urticaria/angioedema. I have experience as a caregiver for my father and younger sister. My sister has ulcerative colitis and has experienced mental health issues, including PTSD, anxiety, and depression."
"I work full-time as a Spanish-English translator/analyst for a business intelligence company. In my spare time, I work with multiple stakeholders (including pharma, patient associations/charities, clinicians, patients, and the healthcare industry) via my company, 'The Spark Global.'"
"I want to bring the patient voice into the healthcare journey, addressing issues that affect specific patient and cross-patient communities within the healthcare industry."
