Panel Discussion: How Super-Patients Activate Their Super-Powers

Monday, December 8, 2014   5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for a panel discussion that will focus on the role of patients as active partners in their own healthcare.

Each panelist will share their compelling story about the importance of developing this "super-power" in their own lives as patients and advocates -- they'll describe the importance of patient engagement across three different dimensions of care: acute, chronic, and crisis.

Come learn from these three engaging patient leaders:
