PATIENT ADVOCACY & COMMUNITY HEALTH

PATIENT ADVOCACY

Medicine focuses on individual health. Public health focuses on populations. Patient advocacy is a critical part of bridging the two disciplines across the health system. My work over the years has been focused at the intersection of technology and public health interventions to benefit patients individually and collectively.

My experiences of the topics below have focused me on the value of patient-centered interventions in terms of approach to both technology development and measuring patient outcomes.
