The Patient’s Podium Founder and Executive Director Nichole Davis’ story about her experience as a patient, Board-Certified Patient Advocate, and healthcare professional was highlighted this month at the National Patient Advocate Foundation’s Annual Patient Congress focused on Health Needs Navigation.
Her experience advocating for the needs of patients to lawmakers and government officials as a volunteer in several nationals organizations taught her the importance of engaging lawmakers about your experience in healthcare, so they can work to change it for the better through policy and legislation.
