About

My name is Jonathan and I'm the founder of Tikkun Patient Advocates. As a cancer survivor, I intimately know how a serious diagnosis can leave you feeling overwhelmed, confused, and with more questions than answers. In this ocean of unknowns, patients and their families often find themselves wanting to grasp onto something tangible and to be connected. Connected to answers, to medical professionals, to resources, to hope and even themself. That’s where I come in. I’m an independent Board-Certified Patient Advocate (BCPA) and also a research advocate with over a decade of experience working in oncology (cancer). As an independent patient advocate, I work for you and your well-being is my top priority. As a research advocate, I collaborate on national patient-centered projects that improve outcomes and the medical system on a whole. My unique background allows for integrative and compassionate care that sees you as the person you are and not a diagnosis. I’m able to be that connection for you, ensuring that your needs are met along the entire healthcare continuum. If you or a loved one wants to improve your care, I’d love to connect. Some of my work experience includes: Serves on SWOG’s - a cooperative group of the National Clinical Trials Network - Patient Advocate, Adolescent Young Adult, and Digital Engagement Committees Published in peer-reviewed journals including the Journal of Clinical Oncology Worked on several Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) grants 2020 Leukemia Lymphoma Society’s Man & Woman of The Year campaign Featured in Cancer Today Magazine Guest on The Cancer Support Community Podcast AYA@USC Patient and Family Advisory Council Member Samfund/Expect Miracles Foundation grant reviewer Primary Investigator on study that incorporates digital tools to improve patient outcomes Launched a pilot project that reformed the Los Angeles Unified School Health curriculum to include importance of screening for testicular cancer For more information about me please https://www.tikkunpatientadvocates.com
