Topic: Consumer Health Care Advocacy
Tuesday, November 14 / 8:30 am
Durham Tech Hillsborough Campus - Room 203

Increase self-awareness and confidence as a health care consumer! Join us for a conversation on health advocacy led by Santisha Walker (Walker Group Health & Wellness).

The Walker Group's pioneering Health Advocacy Program provides reliable insight and education to healthcare consumers (i.e., patients and families) instructing how to:

  • effectively navigate the challenging healthcare system;
  • competently interact with their medical care team; and
  • confidently make quality health decisions.

Healthcare consumers experience stress and challenges while navigating the healthcare system, interacting with the medical team, and making quality health decisions. Learn down-to-earth, practical guidance, instruction, tools, and resources based on a Registered Nurse's work experience and healthcare professional knowledge from various healthcare settings.
