Patient Empowerment Webinar

On Monday, March 22, 2010 at 8 pm EST, we’ll have an expert in patient advocacy and empowerment chatting with us! Here are the details:

Trisha Torrey is Every Patient’s Advocate, a mission she began after a heinous misdiagnosis of cancer in the summer of 2004. Told she had a rare and aggressive lymphoma and had only months to live without chemo, she instead used her wits and chutzpah to prove the two confirming reviews of her biopsy were — wrong. What she learned is that American healthcare is not about health or care. It’s about sickness and money. Almost 100,000 people die each year because of medical errors and misdiagnosis. Millions more suffer at the hands of the system through mistakes of diagnosis or treatment.

She has been interviewed and quoted by CNN, NPR, the Wall Street Journal, Fox News, Angie’s List Magazine,, Bottom Line Secrets and many more. CNN’s Empowered Patient named her a Hero of Patient Empowerment in 2008. Her book, “You Bet Your Life: The Ten Mistakes Every Patient Makes,” was published in early 2010. In short, Trisha has been there, done that.

And now she’ll be talking to us.

Join the discussion on March 22nd at 8 pm EST and hear from Trisha as she tells her story, and shares tips with the WEGO Health community of advocates about how to be the most empowered patient possible. Together, we’ll learn how to avoid the common mistakes that so many patients make, and how to get the health care we deserve.
