Monday's program will feature a frank discussion on how to make the most out of your doctor's visit, featuring guest Stephanie Wang, MD, Associate Program Director, Internal Medicine Residency, and Assistant Professor of Medicine, Rush University Medical Center, The goal of the series is to give everyday people the confidence to enact their patient rights, so that they can effectively manage their families' health encounters.

All the efforts of SAVE THE PATIENT promote positive and productive interactions between patients and medical professionals by encouraging individuals to know and implement their rights to ask questions, receive understandable answers, and explore medical options.
