Today we’re proud to announce our Quartet Ambassador Program (QAP), a hand-selected group of individuals whose experiences with physical and mental illnesses guide Quartet’s mission. Ambassadors will help surface the needs, motivations, and mindset of our target patients, which will, in turn, provide valuable insight on Quartet’s products and technology.
Meet the Ambassadors:
