Center for Patient Partnerships

Parker Summers plays with the family dog

The Center for Patient Partnerships helps patients with life threatening or serious chronic illness make informed decisions and get the health care they need and deserve. It provides information and services that are intended to empower the patient. The Center is an advocate for patient choices and preferences with health care providers, insurers, and other parties.

The Center offers an innovative, unprecedented model to educate professionals serving health care consumers who face serious illness. The Center also offers a wealth of information to educate families as they traverse tightropes of access to health care, financial risk, medical decision-making, and employment.
