Rare Patient Voice is made up of dedicated professionals who work to connect clients with rare and non-rare disease patients and family caregivers for all types of research. In this monthly feature, we’ll get to know a Team RPV member.
Richard DeLuca, Project Manager
Rick became part of Team RPV in 2022. A graduate of Rider University with a degree in marketing, he brings a sales management background to his role as Project Manager. Rick values his role in particular because it enables him to help patients and caregivers participate in research, which can ultimately make a difference in people’s lives.
“My favorite part of working at RPV is doing right by our panel members. It’s rewarding to know that I positively contributed to research which can help future generations afflicted with various conditions.”
Rick lives with his wife, two children, and their cats, Shadow and Ra, in Pennsylvania. In his off hours, he spends time working on aquariums (and keeping his cats away from his fish!), watching war movies, trying new restaurants, and enjoying fall weather.
