Rheumatoid Arthritis: We Need The Patient Voice in Health Care

Mariah Zebrowski Leach and Chantelle Marcial explain how they became patient advocates and why the patient voice is important to shaping our health care system.

"Reach out," Chantelle, a patient advocate with Global Healthy Living Foundation, encourages newly diagnosed patients. "Find these groups. Find other people that can help you along in your journey."

Mariah, who started writing as a way to cope, now maintains an award-winning personal blog about her life with rheumatoid arthritis.
