Health & Patient Advocacy
Health and patient advocacy covers many areas.
Pat Labez Muntz
OHANA -- "family" in Hawaiian -- is where my path to health and patient advocacy began. It is a road of many twists and turns, of roadblocks and detours, and one that brings immense satisfaction when I am able to help others.
In 1993, following the sudden loss of our father in Hawaii, my siblings and I realized our mother's painful deterioration and heartbreak of confronting Alzheimer's Disease. Since then, I was also thrust into the world of cancer, stroke, spinal stenosis, heart disease, and diabetes within my family alone.
The need to navigate an increasingly challenging healthcare system, sorting through and reconciling a myriad of medical bills and insurance claims, has given me empathy and a unique perspective and understanding of these situations. Previously certified as an administrator for a residential care facility for the elderly has also equipped me in handling long term care needs.
When families are struck with a serious health condition, we want to be -- need to be -- at their side. Fear, uncertainty, doubt, guilt, and exhaustion can often take over what precious time we have. Let OHANA be YOUR advocate.
