Today’s show is a replay of a popular show that aired in November.
Betty Long, RN President & Founder of Guardian Nurses, Health Care Advocacy. Betty has been a guest on the Dr. Oz show, the NYT, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Chicago Tribune & the Boston Globe, just to name a few. The mission of her company is for her nurses to act as representatives and advocate for their patients. Since nurse advocates work independently of hospitals, doctors, insurance companies and government agencies, they can be a strong voice for patients in all areas of the healthcare system. Nurse advocates understand healthcare issues from the viewpoint of caring for the patient and of the medical professionals trying to provide care.
Betty has recently written an e book called I’ve Been Diagnosed With What? The Importance of Getting a Second Opinion. Betty will be sharing her expert advice on this topic.
