Care Connections

All of us who’ve been helped — and healed — by a physician or another health care provider know how special that relationship is. In this section of the blog, we focus on different aspects of that “care connection” — finding providers, getting the most from appointments, communicating effectively, and working together to manage or overcome a health issue.
