Empowered Patient Leaders Program
PALTOWN’s Empowered Patient Leaders (EPL) Workshops train patients and carepartners to be community leaders and social influencers for their networks in and beyond COLONTOWN. Participants learn best practices in community management, share experiences, and work together to develop solutions for the many issues that arise in the conversations in COLONTOWN’s 100+ neighborhoods.
For 2021, our EPL program is primarily virtual. We have just concluded our Summer EPL and are planning a Fall EPL: stay tuned for details!
Each Workshop is facilitated by experienced community leaders, including alumni of previous Workshops. Additional faculty include representatives from advocacy organizations and prominent clinicians.
