How to build and take action in your community in four easy steps:
Diversity + Inclusivity, Empower Your Community
There is a role for each of us to play in making sure healthcare is accessible to everyone regardless of where they live or the color of their skin. Ensuring that healthcare systems, comprised of doctors, nurses, hospitals, researchers, scientists and countless others, are representative of and accessible to everyone is essential to addressing and overcoming health disparities and advancing healthcare for everyone. Diversity in clinical trials is critical to ensuring that new treatments are safer and more effective for everyone.
We invite you to watch, read, and engage with us as we work to advance our mission to empower ALL patients and care partners at every step of their cancer journey.

Chat with Patients Like You with #patientchat
The Empowered Patient Chats (#patientchat) are bi-weekly tweetchats held on Friday at 10:00 am Pacific / 1:00 pm Eastern. During the chat, patients, care partners, and advocates come together to learn from each other and discuss topics of interest to empowered patients.
Our Facebook group builds on the success of the #patientchat and aims to extend the discussion beyond Twitter and engage a larger population of patients and caregivers on Facebook.
Living with a disease or other chronic condition is challenging for patients, their families and friends. The Empowered #patientchat strives to engage and empower patients and caregivers by connecting them with each other, sharing resources and inspiration across conditions, and exploring important topics of interest to those in healthcare who want to elevate the patient voice in all healthcare matters. The community is guided by a belief in keeping the patient perspective at the forefront of all healthcare interactions, the strength of peer support, and the power of shared decision making in healthcare.
