L Bradley Schwartz, Founder, Greater National Advocates

For more than 20 years, L. Bradley Schwartz represented insurance companies, defending against lawsuits involving catastrophic injuries until his own experience with the healthcare system caused him to see things differently.

Join us on December 14th, 2020 and learn about his journey through the healthcare system and how this life-changing experience catapulted him into working for change by forming the Greater National Advocates, a national nonprofit foundation with a public service mission to expose and promote independent patient advocacy.

Brad is a former board member of NAHAC (National Association of Healthcare Advocacy Consultants) and he served on PACB (Patient Advocacy Certification Board) and various health and insurance law committees. Since launching in March 2020, GNANOW.ORG, the organization’s national directory has already reached thousands of patients and loved ones in need.

PPS History

PPS was founded in 2014 as a way for health care professionals, caregivers, and community members to share helpful information about patient safety.  Participants learn from each other what has worked for others and ways to become more knowledgeable about safe care and best practices.

PPS is not about your health and there is no medical advice offered.  PPS is about health care which is the journey to the best health outcomes, often missed in caring for patients.


If you have any ideas for speakers, would like to be a speaker, or are interested in joining this vibrant, active planning committee, please contact one of the team members.
