WANTAGH, N.Y. - July 21, 2021 - PRLog -- Pulse Center for Patient Safety Education & Advocacy (Pulse CPSEA) is proud to announce the addition of two leading professionals to its Board of Directors.

Pulse President Ilene Corina says that the shift to real-time online visual collaboration forced by the pandemic has allowed Pulse to offer programs and campaigns and establish partnerships across the country, not just on Long Island. "The wider reach of our messages means that we need more diverse skills on our board, and I'm thrilled to welcome our new Directors."

She earned her J.D. from New York Law School and began her nonprofit career in legislative analysis and public affairs before transitioning to development.

Matthes comments, "Each of us is an expert in our own well-being. How we navigate our interactions with medical professionals is a critical factor in whether we suffer or benefit from their care. As advocates, we can help guide people we care for through their experiences by providing a wide-angle lens, being compassionate listeners, and helping them become well-prepared patients."
