The Journal of Participatory Medicine has published a pair of complementary articles, one by a patient advocate and one by a physician, both concerning the story of a woman who worked tirelessly to obtain better health care for her two chronically ill and developmentally disabled sisters, and of the team of participatory clinicians who helped to turn these women’s lives around. It is a wonderful and moving success story. Nancy Drinan’s view of it, “Three Sisters, One Voice,” is available at http://www.jopm.org/?p=2275; Dan Hoch’s perspective on “The Rewards of Being a Participatory Health Care Provider” is available at http://www.jopm.org/?p=2278.
