Patient Advocacy & Community Service
Patient Advocacy is One of Our Passions
On November 3, 2012 at the 25th Anniversary Rays of Hope Gala, in Washington, DC, the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS) recognized Medical Minds for the group’s 14-year commitment to the award-winning Cancer Survival Toolbox®. Since 1998, we have branded, scripted, edited, recorded, translated, and packaged the Cancer Survival Toolboxin English and Spanish in collaboration with contributors from NCCS, Oncology Nursing Society (ONS), Association of Oncology Social Workers (AOSW), and National Association of Social Workers (NASW).
Over the years we have developed patient education related to multiple products and services. Since 2008, we have created leading-edge programs to educate on continuous glucose monitoring, the wave of the future in diabetes management. Recently we were invited to participate in the educational activities of the National Association for Continence (NAFC). Lynn Nye currently serves on the Project Advisory Council of the NAFC.
