This is a grassroots education program answering the question of who needs a patient advocate. The answer is everyone! For those facing healthcare challenges either for themselves or a loved one, the medical system can be complex and overwhelming. Having an advocate to take simple steps to protect your health or the health of your loved one is key to simplifying the medical experience. Have you ever left the doctor's office not sure what you needed to do next or felt your concerns were not heard during your appointment? It is impossible to listen, think and communicate all at the same time when it comes to your health. In this program, you’ll learn what questions to ask, what to look for, and what to watch for during your care.
