Get to Know Us

PSI understands firsthand the pain and hardship that chronic illness can cause. That’s why our founder, Dr. Dana Kuhn, shaped and pioneered the very first non-profit patient assistance model in 1989, to help those struggling with the financial burden of fighting a chronic illness. Dr. Kuhn has since retired, but his passion for patient assistance lives on through the continued work of PSI.

We know that dealing with a rare disease is difficult on many fronts- let us help alleviate the financial strain of chronic illness and advocate for you.
