Joslyn promotes patient advocacy at weekend public workshop
Most patients leave the doctor's office retaining only about 20 percent of what is discussed. Join others in the community on Saturday, October 6, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., to learn how to get the most out of a medical visit for you, a friend, or loved one. The workshop takes place at Pilgrim Place, 660, Avery Road.
Attorney Donna Ambrogi, nurse Linda Vogel and social worker Janet Evans will present tips and tools for communicating with your health professional. This workshop is for patients, family members, and caregivers. Fee of $10 includes refreshments, lunch, and take home materials. For more information or to register, please call Pilgrim Place at 447-0200.
