Sample Topics:
  • Understanding your HIPAA rights and the importance of reviewing your medical records
  • Navigating Telemedicine and how to communicate effectively with your healthcare team
  • How to effectively use your patient portal to assist in making informed medical decisions

I started Hughes Advocacy to help patients navigate the fragmented healthcare system to prevent a medical error or harm. I was personally affected by a preventable medical error.

I have been in the medical industry for over 20 years, and the past five, serving as a private patient advocate. I gained so much wisdom, crucial information, and valuable resources that I have expanded my footprint to help as many as I can from medical harm. I now offer Healthcare Group Coaching and Speaking to audiences who are not interested in hiring a private patient advocate but wish to have the tools and resources to make better informed medical decisions. 

My goal as a Healthcare advocate, coach, and speaker is to be your voice and put you back at the center of your healthcare! This is done through education and empowerment, which gives hope to the clients that I serve. 

As a healthcare speaker, I provide my audience with relevant information, tools, and resources. I am also very involved with healthcare policy and will give the audience up to date information on the topics that I speak. Each speaking engagement is uniquely tailored for the audience to which I will deliver. My typical audience includes academics (nurses and residents), corporations, and conferences.

Due to COVID, all speaking engagements and presentations are virtual. 

Fees are negotiable.
