Navigating through the US Healthcare System can be difficult and frustrating. This has initiated a new role, the Professional Healthcare Advocate. Advocates backgrounds are varied and include nurses, social workers, geriatric care managers or other health care professionals. There are also advocates who specialize in insurance or medical legal issues.
My mission is to educate the public that they do not have to go thru their medical care journey alone. I also speak on tips on how to advocate for yourself regarding your health.
I also give talks on a variety of subjects of interest to the aging population.
