To help give residents the tips they need to better communicate with health care professionals, state Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, is hosting a Health Care Advocacy Seminar with AARP from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday, July 21, at the Aurora Public Library-Eola Branch, located at 555 S. Eola Road in Aurora.

“Knowing how to talk with your doctors and pharmacists about your concerns can be difficult, but these conversations are vital to our health,” Kifowit said. “My goal is for residents to leave this seminar equipped with the knowledge they need to be their own health care advocates.”

Kifowit’s seminar will feature AARP Illinois Specialist Courtney Hedderman, who will discuss tools for effective communication with health care professionals. Attendees can receive one-on-one assistance to address questions and concerns about approaching these conversations.

“Too often, patients do not know what kind of questions to ask their doctors to ensure they are receiving the best health care possible,” Kifowit said. “It is important that people of all ages have the skills they need to advocate for the care they deserve.”

This event is free and open to the public. To RSVP or for more information, contact Kifowit’s full-time constituent service office by calling 630-585-1308, by email at Stephanie.Kifowit@att.net, or by visiting ILDistrict84.com.
