Speak for Yourself: Becoming the CEO of Your Health

Mar 11, 2024

11:50am – 12:25pm CT

The best advocate for your care is YOU, but it can be overwhelming to navigate an increasingly complex medical infrastructure and sift through the volume of information (good and bad) available online. Women can also feel overlooked by their doctors or like their doctor is not asking the right questions. Our experts will discuss how you can become an informed patient and how you can equip yourself to be a partner to your doctor.

• L. Marie Asad, Advocate for women’s health, living with PBC
