Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
Before I became a pharmacist, I was a caregiver for my dad who was a foreigner and a minority. He had stage 3 esophageal cancer and was also diagnosed with diabetes later. He was on insulin and he had 2 hypoglycemic episodes in a row which made him disappointed with care he was getting in US. We booked our flight to go to S. Korea to seek care but he passed away a week before his flight. I was interested in healthcare but that event was a decision making one to pursue pharmacy. I was eager to make changes in healthcare and I gained skills and knowledge in patient safety and quality improvement. While doing that, I became a passionate patient safety advocate and I decided to pursue professional patient advocacy. I met so many passionate advocates along the way who have inspired me. I am especially interested in raising voices for minority patients.
