About me

Gender Male
Occupation patient advocate
Location Haverford, PA, United States
Introduction I am the patient advocate of my 40-year-old daughter. She is housebound in St. Paul MN with CFS/ME. This blog presents reports from several lectures or conferences. It also attempts to define, in my own way, the role of a Patient Advocate. The premise is simple. I make my observations in hopes that they might be beneficial to others, in the same spirit of generosity that so many others' comments have been useful to me. These entries are presented for information only purposes. In no way should they be taken as medical advice. I am not a doctor and I do not want to be one.
