We’ve had a great time speaking with Meg Hall, a social worker at Maine Medical who focuses on supporting cystic fibrosis families in both the child and adult clinics. Meg has had the unique experience of being the connector between the families and the healthcare system, and joined us this week to tell us all about why she loves her job.
Helen and her husband, Paul, have seven kids, several of whom have chronic conditions. Their oldest son, Paul, has Common Variable Immune Deficiency, a condition that makes it difficult for him to fight off infections on his own. This interview will focus on Helen's experience learning to navigate the care for Paul's condition.
