Sneha Dave

Sneha Dave is a Policy Fellow at RespectAbility, where she is helping to create an innovative Community of Practice in Long Beach, California, with the ultimate goal of developing a national model of success while advancing opportunities for the people and community of Long Beach.

Dave is a rising sophomore at Indiana University, where she majors in Chronic Illness Advocacy and Economics with a certificate in Journalism. Her enthusiasm for chronic illness and disability advocacy stems from her own condition, Ulcerative Colitis. She is the founder of the Crohn’s and Colitis Teen Times, a nonprofit organization with a mission of providing support to teenagers battling Inflammatory Bowel Diseases.

Dave is a motivational speaker and delivers speeches at leadership conferences, corporate events and fundraising events. Additionally, she is a content creator for U.S. News and World Report and many of her works have been published in different media outlets. Dave also is passionate about bridging the patient-pharmaceutical company gap, and serves as a part of the Pfizer advisory board. She is currently designing the first-ever conference of its kind, the Health Advocacy Summit, aimed at teaching teenagers with chronic conditions and disabilities advocacy skills.

Dave has profiled Jonathan Kessler, Donna Meltzer and Calvin Harris, three guest speakers for the 2017 Summer Fellowship. Read them on our website:
