Learn fundamentals of patient advocacy from Dr. Jamie Wells

What do you do if family member is admitted to the hospital? How do you become more proactive when you are talking to doctors about your medical care—or of those you love? What do you ask when trying to hire a caregiver?

On Wednesday, June 20, the JFCS Patient Partners Program will welcome Dr. Jamie Wells to present “How to Save Your Life and The Lives of Loved Ones: Becoming a Patient Advocacy Rock Star.”

Wells was named among “America’s Top Physicians,” is a Yale graduate, board certified, and award-winning pediatrician with over a decade of experience caring for patients. Currently the director of medicine for the American Council on Science and Health, Wells can be found anywhere from the Big Apple to the White House, helping the public understand and participate in patient advocacy.

The JFCS Patient Partners Program is sponsored by the Saltzman Foundation, Community Foundation of South Jersey Aging Innovation Fund, and Area VII Physicians Review Organization, Inc./HQSI.

The event will take place at the Family Activity Center in the Katz JCC in Cherry Hill at 12 noon, and is a “lunch and learn.” Guests are asked to bring a dairy lunch. Refreshments and desserts will be provided.
