Presented by Iris Waichler, MSW, LCSW
Leading Advocate for Health Awareness & Caregiver Support
Speaker - Author - Consultant - Counselor

Iris Waichler has been a well known patient advocate and licensed clinical social worker for the last 35 years. She began her career working with geriatric patients who experienced catastrophic illness and counseled them and their families about adapting to these medical problems. She helped them about how to cope with the disease and its impact on their lives.

Her hospital experience helped patients and families who suddenly found themselves feeling helpless and alone. This prompted her to write her first book, Patient Power: How to Have a Say in Your Hospital Stay. She knew what questions to ask and where to go for support to empower them in coping with their medical conditions and the resulting life changes. She also authored a new book, Role Reversal: How to Take Care of Yourself and Your Aging Parents.
