Meet our trained advocates, graduates of Pulse's Family Centered Patient Advocacy (FCPA) training course. These advocates and patient support persons have successfully completed the Pulse Family-Centered Patient Advocacy Training, and are available to provide a variety of services. We encourage you to contact them to discuss your individual needs.

At Pulse, we define “advocate” broadly, as including not only professional patient advocates, but anyone who assists and supports a person receiving medical care.
