Health Mentors Program: What Health Mentors love about Jefferson



“Being a Health Mentor is a form of consciousness‐raising about my relatively rare disease, so that a few of our rising generation of healthcare providers will know more about it. Being a Health Mentor is one of the few things I can do to produce some positive value out of chronic illness. It’s also a way for me to ‘give back’ for some of the terrific care I have received.”

“I have enjoyed working with the team. They were all so professional, mature and most of her they had great listening skills. They were wonderful and such an asset to Jefferson Health Care. Thank you for the opportunity to be with them and to know them.”
