Lea Christo

As a licensed independent clinical social worker, Lea has long been privileged to help patients and families successfully navigate the healthcare system and provide support along life’s difficult journeys.

As a full-time faculty member and director of the Health Advocacy Program at Assumption University, she is eager to promote the expanding professional field of patient advocacy through the work of the PACB. She believes we must advance best practices that respond to the dynamic challenges faced by healthcare consumers and serve our communities through health promotion, which is why Lea served as a member of the inter-organizational Ethics task force that updated existing guidelines to better reflect current practice.

Lea will speak Saturday morning:
