He has strived to work to educate and facilitate a relationship between the patients, the rare disease community, and pharmaceutical companies. He has delivered many keynote addresses world-wide at different pharmaceutical companies and Rare disease non-profits to help inform Bio Tech firms what it is like being a rare disease patient and what rare disease patients are seeking.
Ryan graduated from the University of Louisville in 2017 with a B.A. majoring in Sports Administration. During his time in high school, junior college, 4-year college, and working with the San Francisco 49ers equipment staff, he was a student equipment manager focused on serving the athletes and coaches.
