My Patient Experience: Can You Handle the Truth?

Brooke Billingsley will provide thought provoking insight as she shares her trifecta of knowledge as a cancer patient, generator of 60,000 healthcare consumer reports, and someone who has conducted 100’s of clinical employee interviews.

Brooke will share her emotional journey as she continues to navigate her way through a healthcare system on the path to healing. Her unique perspective as healthcare consultant, human behavioral expert, and now as a patient will provide attendees with strategies that maximize their marketing efforts, understand how to align with the patient’s goals, and convey a message of truth.
