“Advocates Help Patients Navigate Health Care Maze”

“Advocates Help Patients Navigate Health Care Maze”

On June 22, NPR reporter Richard Knox aired this story during the “Morning Edition” broadcast.  It was an excellent piece profiling efforts by an individual and a volunteer organization to help patients and families get the care they need to navigate our health care and elder care systems.  Each time the media does a piece on the needs of patients and the role of advocates, it helps to make folks aware that many of us are out there to do just that.  It also helps advocates and navigators to find each other! 

 I encourage you to listen to the whole piece.  Mr. Knox  followed up in a blog post on June 25 in which Patient Navigator LLC was mentioned as a resource.  http://tinyurl.com/loaz9k  National Public Radio does an superb job reporting on health care and health care reform.  You can learn more by going to www.npr.org
