Become a Patient Advisor
If you or a family member has experiences to share about healthcare, you can use this knowledge help improve healthcare for current and future patients at Henry Ford Health System.
Some cancer types have specific patient advisory groups, such as the Head and Neck Cancer Patient Advisory Group. They meet once a month to:
- Advise our head and neck cancer team

- Mentor other patients
Based on your interests and level of commitment, there are many different opportunities to get involved with the Patient Advisory program. Learn more on their website.
