Welcome to the Patient Activation Network
At the Patient Activation Network, we share stories from patients and providers to uplift the patient experience. It is our hope that these stories will educate, inspire and help others know that they are not alone in their journey.
The way we accomplish our mission is through our podcast, motivational speaking and continuing education. Our work has been featured at leading health organizations, events and universities. If you have a health experience that you would like to share on our podcast or are interested in learning more about our services, please contact us today.
