The Care Partner Project  does not have a stake or say in the advocates’ businesses, practices or outcomes, nor are listings shown here meant as endorsement. 

The Care Partner Project aims to demystify health care and equip people to advocate for themselves and loved ones in the health care system.

However, we know that navigating health care can be overwhelming and you may need more help.  

The professional advocates listed below are in private pratice, listed by geographic area but, to the best of our knowledge, all are available for telehealth meetings.

You may want to consult these reliable directories of professional patient advocates, too.
