Patient Power debuted in February 2005 and is a weekly show hosted by Andrew Schorr, eleven-year leukemia survivor, patient educator and patient advocate. The show features renowned medical experts on topics that include cancer, pain, diabetes, and heart issues, as well as comment from experts in clinical trials and top pharmacists. The show serves to bring patients together in a radio and Internet community to help navigate an often inhospitable health care system. Patient Power takes questions from callers and Internet listeners on topics such as how to find the right doctor, how to advocate effectively, when to get a second opinion from a specialist and how to evaluate one treatment option over another.
