It is an ADVOCACY and Education class to provide tools to consumers, friends, and family members in how to make working with service agencies, governmental agencies and medical care providers less frustrating. It will be an interactive class with materials that you can take home and continue using to improve working relationships with agencies and providers!! In July, we will have another Advocacy class taught by Bart, which is always fun and educational!
