A Wider Horizons Health Advocate is an individual who provides direct and personalized services to a member and/or their family seeking health care.

This typically includes interacting with a member’s healthcare professionals, attending appointments, medical translation, appointment setting and coordination, asserting client’s patient rights, communication, and identification of medical/health resources.

Wider Horizons Health Advocates receive training and support from each other, Wider Horizons staff, and other professionals. Advocates’ training is based upon our publications, Preparing for a Serious Health Event, and a companion handbook, Health Advocacy in Wider Horizons.
