Empowered Patient Leaders Program
PALTOWN’s Empowered Patient Leaders (EPL) Workshops train patients and caregivers 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 120+ neighborhoods.
In 2022, our EPL program includes both virtual and in-person Workshops. Our first in-person EPL since 2019 was held in June, and our second virtual EPL of the year is coming in September.
Combining these modalities allows us to reach participants from around the world while continuing to foster the deep relationships that an in-person event creates.
Our EPL Facilitators
Each Workshop is facilitated by experienced community leaders, including alumni of previous Workshops. Additional faculty include representatives from advocacy organizations and prominent clinicians.
