Innovations to Help You be an Even More “Difficult Patient”
Patrick Neustatter

Dr. Patrick Neustatter has a particular interest in helping patients become even more involved, informed, and in charge of their own healthcare — and has a book (Managing Your Doctor: The Smart Patient’s Guide to Getting Effective Affordable Healthcare) coming out on September 28, 2015.  You will be instructed in the latest innovations that will help you to be, what he slightly facetiously calls, a “difficult patient” (which is sometimes how the medical profession views involved, informed, and empowered patients).

UUFF NEWS & EVENTS:

Committee Fair, September 20
Our committees are the workhouses of the UUFF, and we are looking for your input and service.  To help you find the committee that would most benefit from your special interests and talents, we’re holding a Committee Fair on September 20 following the service.  Each committee will set up a table to provide information about their goals, responsibilities, and projects.  There’s a committee that’s right for everyone, and we want you to find the right fit.  So grab a cup of coffee, stop by each table to chat with a representative, learn about ongoing efforts and future plans, and see how you can join them to make a difference in the life of the UUFF.  See you on the 20th!

Welcome Back Potluck, September 27
The Friendship Committee invites you to celebrate our community with a potluck lunch following the worship service on September 27.  Please bring a delicious dish to share–your specialty or your favorite take-out–and enjoy the company of fellow UUs.  We’ll cross our fingers for good weather, so plan to eat outside on our patio or on the grass.  Bring a blanket or lawn chair for seating if you can, but some seating will be available outside and in.  The Friendship Committee will proved the paper goods and drinks and will organize food contributions as you bring them in before the service.  Potlucks are always a dining adventure and we encourage you and your family to join in!
