Let’s Navigate The Healthcare System-An Overview of Parental Rights

6:30 - 8:30 PM
17010 Pomerado Rd.
San Diego, CA 92128
*Please park in the lower parking lot that is near an oil change location and baseball fields on the corner of Rancho Bernardo Rd and Pomerado Rd. Look for our TACA signs and enter our meeting in the Lower Fireside Room. We have to be out of the room by 9pm so please kindly move your conversations outside at that time.

Many of us feel overwhelmed about how to navigate the healthcare system. It is a daunting task many special needs families face when they need or are trying their best to find medial care for their children. We will learn about your rights as parents and how to best advocate within the current healthcare system for your child.
Tawny has been a registered nurse working first in level 4 NICUs for over 5 years and now in a pediatric CVICU for the past 6 years. She has cared for some of the sickest and smallest patients in her community. Tawny has had to utilize and navigate multiple healthcare systems after her children were diagnosed as special needs and realized the daunting tasks many families have in finding care for their children. She has become an advocate volunteering for an organization working to protect informed consent by educating the public, state and federal legislators, and medical professionals.
All new attendees receive a free TACA Journey Guide.
