    Karen Mercereau, Patient Advocate Specialist

    in Entrepreneur

    Karen Mercereau is a nationally recognized visionary leader in healthcare, known for her ability to transcend challenges, and create opportunity from complexity.  This was the quality behind her founding of RN Patient Advocates in 2002, for which she received a Purpose Prize Fellowship.     A clinical RN for 45 years in diverse intensive care as well as community health settings, Karen was also integral in developing the first hospice in Tucson, AZ.  Recognizing the dearth of public health programs available in the AIDS community in the late 1980’s, she chaired a countywide consortium to develop AIDs relief programs in Tampa Bay.  Karen has also been instrumental in the design and implementation of hospital and health care systems, lecturing nationally on their wider applications.  Currently, Karen heads the RN Patient Advocate Learning Intensive  in association with the University of Arizona College of Nursing.  This immersion learning program for qualified clinical RNs prepares them for the development of their own practices as independent RN Patient Advocates (iRNPAs).
    Karen is also the leader of the RN Patient Advocate Group Practice in Southern Arizona comprised of independent RN Patient Advocates who provide both individual RN Patient Advocate services as well as community health literacy programs.  She is the President of Health Education and Advocacy Leaders, Inc., a foundation she started to support community health literacy programs.

Dealing with her daughter’s life-threatening diagnosis, the many recurrences of cancer, and the subsequent treatments for the malignant and aggressive tumors marked the beginning an almost 20-year involvement in our healthcare system. The unique combination of her scientific training, her work as a healthcare provider, and guiding a child through a chronic illness has afforded her invaluable insight as an advocate for patients.

    Advocate vs. Advocate

    in Pets

    In the world of Pit Bull Advocacy, we all want the same thing. The fair and equal treatments of the dogs we know and love as Pit Bull. One thing has been clear in my 12 years as an owner, lover, and advocate, our methods and views are not always the same, and we can, and we do, clash. In fighting, boasting, egos, and more. What can we do as advocates to look past those differences, avoid such clashes and do away with the egos involved, including our own?

    Join Dogfather and Joe on our 1st show of 2015 as we discuss this and more. We welcome your calls with comments and questions. Phone lines open at the top of the show. 347-838-8615
