Taking Matters into Your Own Hands – a Patient Advocacy Journey

18 October 2018

In our fast-paced world, the healthcare industry is no different in its quest to quickly and successfully transition patients through their ‘continuum of care’. Unfortunately, many times there is a knowledge gap between patient/caretaker and their respective provider, nurse, or physician. In this episode, Vynamic tries to tackle these issues and discuss the differences between ‘lowercase a’ advocates, and “capital A” Advocacy to find some solutions to mitigate these risks. Special guest and friend of Vynamic, Dr. David Fajgenbaum, stops by to tell us his amazing story of advocacy around a disease that he was diagnosed with; one that almost killed him.
