Take The Pledge.
Health technologies that affect our lives and futures need new rights and fair representation from patients who are affected by those technologies.
Policies and practices in the tech industry allow our sensitive health information to be bought, sold, and sometimes used against us.

The Light Collective is on a mission to represent the rights, interests, and voices of patient communities in healthcare technology. Learn more.
