Giving Tuesday is a movement that unleashes the power of radical generosity. It reimagines a world built upon shared humanity and generosity.
A+J Patient Advocacy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency providing all of its service at no cost to youth or their families. We are working hard to prepare the next generation of Nevada’s young people to be informed health consumers, despite the difficulties and complexities within our local healthcare system.
Last year, your generosity funded our programs for nearly six months. This year, we are hoping to stretch that to a full year!
WHY YOU SHOULD GIVE
Did you know?
There is no free-standing children’s hospital in Nevada.
Our state’s pediatric healthcare system is on life support. Pediatric specialists are few and far between and the number of practicing general pediatricians (compared to our population of children) puts Nevada at just 60% of national standards.
With pediatric healthcare stretched so thin, families are facing longer wait times for appointments, spending more money out-of-pocket for specialists not contracted with insurance, and having to manage the stress and spillover of delayed medical treatment. On its very best day, Nevada’s pediatric healthcare system and social service network is extremely complicated, pushing families to give up, and forcing children to go untreated.
Independent healthcare advocates can help.
A+J Patient Advocacy provides free health navigation, health education, and health advocacy services across Nevada. Our clients include children, teens, young adults, and their families, in addition to local community organizations.
We help families navigate the healthcare system maze, ensure their voices are being heard as the leaders of the care team, and guide the patients as they grow and learn more about their condition. Our advocates also push for progress in the healthcare system, educating providers through one-on-one patient visits as well as educational workshops. Young adults who are a product of this fractured pediatric healthcare system and subsequently tossed into a stressed adult healthcare system are struggling to adult while drowning in their healthcare troubles.
In Nevada, it is hard to find someone who doesn’t need a professional health advocate.
Rest assured that your donation is well-stewarded and directly supports the youth and families we serve. We are proud to have earned the Platinum Transparency rating from GuideStar in 2023, the highest rating they award.
