Just a bump.
This post hides it's value. I state that anyone wanting to be a strong advocate should consider this free course. But after speaking with a few that started it they felt they could have had this training when they started out with their own case. Which I guess supports my theory that we are always our own #1 advocate. The presenter, Musa Mayer, is a breast cancer survivor but wow how she took on the advocacy. This is a powerful class funded by our federal government as Musa works at the National Institute of Health. I have hooked up with her on the PAIR network and she is a heck of a teacher.
Folks, understanding the medical system is always useful in your fights. I wish I had taken this course years ago. (Except its not years old). No matter your stage or interest in your case, this is a very interesting course as well.
I hope some take it and allow me to lasso you for some future participation in some of the cool things I've been able have fun with.
