Be Your Own Superhero:
This motivating talk empowers tweens, teens, and young adults to begin to realize that their ability to advocate for themselves is their superpower. The audience will learn the many benefits of expressing their thoughts, feelings, needs, and desires as well as of taking part in medical conversations and decisions about their care. As they begin to find, own, and use their voices they will realize that they have the power to create change in their own lives, and that when they advocate for themselves they become their own superhero. By the end of the talk, the audience members will be ready to put on their own capes and fly!
Power of Perspective:
This eye opening talk will foster medical students and doctors alike to gain insight from a perennial patient’s perspective of how to: build rapport and create trust in the doctor patient relationship, deliver sensitive medical information and diagnoses, and encourage self advocacy in their patients as they promote the idea that their patients are their own best advocates and collaborators.
I will work with you to customize any of these talks based on your event or organization’s needs and objectives.
