Brad Schwartz

Founder and President of Greater National Advocates

Brad Schwartz

L. Bradley Schwartz is the president and founder of Greater National Advocates, a nonprofit public awareness foundation and directory for the profession of Independent Patient Advocacy. 

He is an attorney who lost his limbs after communication breakdowns in a hospital ER resulted in a failure to recognize the clear warning signs of sepsis.

It became Brad’s personal mission to make sure every patient’s voice is heard, because in his case, it wasn’t. His personal medical malpractice survival story led to the formation of Greater National Advocates.

GNANOW.ORG is a leading national online directory of Independent Patient Advocates. The goal of GNA is to quickly connect patients and families with Independent Patient Advocates and to promote the profession as a necessary and welcome component of modern patient care. 

Brad will participate in the panel discussion Friday morning.
