BARNESVILLE, Ga.--()--The PharmaKon CEO/founder Gail Trauco, R.N., BSN-OCN frequently travels around the United States to help patients, medical practitioners, and pharmaceutical companies align on best case solutions. She has gained a reputation as a fierce advocate for patient’s rights and for resolving the most difficult medical cases in the American healthcare system.

Recently tapped to receive the Top 100 Women to KNOW in North America! Award, Trauco is an invaluable resource and inspired solution provider to patients, health care providers and pharmaceutical companies alike. She has spent four decades helping patients navigate the red tape of medical care and is focused on leveling the healthcare playing field. Trauco will receive her award at the Annual KNOW Summit on May 17, 2022 at the Saguaro Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona.

“My practice and mindset for patient advocacy comes from years of direct patient experience...from my time as a candy striper volunteer to present day working with some of the world's leading healthcare providers and pharmaceutical companies,” says Trauco, a 43+ year Oncology nurse and champion for equitable healthcare. “My exposure to innovative treatments and continued involvement in clinical research allows me to provide a 360 degree view of the U.S. healthcare system. Our top priority is bringing diversity and inclusion to all healthcare sectors through decentralized clinical trials.”
