Academy Board Member
Kathy Hebert’s life-changing personal experience with cellular therapies ignited her passion to be involved in the innovative area of regenerative medicine. As a result, Ms. Hebert has obtained extensive operational and development experience in the healthcare field of regenerative medicine.
In 2012, Ms. Hebert co-founded The International Stem Cell Society (STEMSO), the first trade organization created for regenerative medicine. Patient and physician advocacy led to STEMSO’s creation of an international medical conference on Grand Bahama Island via a Memorandum of Understanding with the Bahamian government. See the publication of STEMSO’s letter, authored by Ms. Hebert, as the organization involved itself in the regulatory work of the European Medicine’s Agency.
Ms. Hebert then served as the president and co-founder of a non-profit association, the Alliance for the Advancement of Cellular Therapies (AACT), where the Board of Directors developed both a scientific and a patient advocacy platform for the advancement of regenerative medicine in the USA. The Board was active in the FDA public hearings concerning stem cells. At the Chicago 2015 AACT Conference, entitled “The Dilemma of Difficult Disease: Cell Therapy to the Rescue?”, world-renowned researchers and physicians shared their innovative research and proven results to create new ways of caring for patients.
Currently, Kathy Hebert is founder of Regenerative Connections, a digital marketing firm and founder of the Compassionate Revolution, a 501c4 community which bridges science-based energy medicine and spirituality for effective healing.
