Introduction I am an emergency physician and public health leader with a passion for patient advocacy. Inspired by my experiences as a caregiver to my mother, I work to educate and empower patients and families so that they receive the best care possible. I received my medical training at Washington University in St. Louis and Brigham and Women's Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, and now serve as the Director of Patient-Centered Care Research, Attending Physician in the Department of Emergency Medicine, and Assistant Professor of Health Policy in the Milken School of Public Health, at George Washington University. My book is When Doctors Don't Listen: How to Avoid Misdiagnoses and Unnecessary Tests; more information at www.drleanawen.com // @drleanawen
