A Proud Founding Member

CHCAO is striving to create clarity on the language used in our profession. We also look forward to conducting data collection efforts on the role of patient and health care advocates to show the positive impact of health care advocacy on patient outcomes and serve as a central resource for those interested in the profession of health care advocacy.
