How I Can Help
~Bettering Healthcare in Nevada~

A+J Patient Advocacy empowers young people to make smart healthcare decisions, collaborates with the community to change the health landscape, and advocates for improvement in government policies.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency, we provide free health navigation, education, and advocacy services to children, teens, young adults (18-26), and their immediate families.

We believe that every person should receive appropriate and timely healthcare services regardless of geography, income, race, ethnicity, sex, gender, sexual orientation, ability, diagnosis, or complexity of condition. It is important for supportive individuals to participate in our services alongside the client. We will ensure our services remain free for those in need and their families.

Our vision of the healthcare system is one where every young person has open access to appropriate, timely, and affordable care to maximize health outcomes.

Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
Rebeka Acosta is the first Board Certified Patient Advocate in Nevada and one of a handful of advocates in the U.S. specifically working with children. After a 15-year career in healthcare administration, she welcomed two children to her family with congenital conditions and was thrust into the deep end of the pediatric healthcare system. Heart surgeries, airway surgeries, and traveling out-of-state for care took over every aspect of family life for the next decade.

When Rebeka returned to the workforce, patient advocacy was the path in which she could share the information she had learned with other families like hers. She earned her BCPA credentials in 2018 and founded A+J Patient Advocacy in 2021.
