Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
Helping my parents coordinate the care of my chronically ill sibling was my first challenging healthcare experience. We struggled with obtaining diagnosis, explanation of test results, and decent communication between providers. These unacceptable practices prompted my interest to become a healthcare professional and advocate, after all Ka-Fee-Lat means someone who comfort, helps, and protect the well-being of others. Navigating the healthcare system as a patient, immigrant, then as a caregiver to my aging parents, has significantly improved my appreciation for distinct communication. Caring for patients with diagnosis of cancer and blood disorder over the past decade and identifying the immense support they need has enlightened me to the crucial role of health advocates. All these experiences have informed my decision to launch Fides Health Advocates, LLC.
