Monday's program will feature a frank discussion regarding Retail Health Clinics with Erin Buckley, FNP-C, Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, Manager of Operations, MinuteClinic-Chicago.

The goal of the series is to give everyday people the confidence to enact their patient rights, being able to effectively manage their families' health encounters.

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.
