William Britt

Founder/Exec. Dir. of the Association of Patient Advocates APA, William Britt has over 10 years of experience working for non-profit volunteer organizations. Four years in management positions, and his work as a community activist have allowed Mr. Britt to make deep, positive inroads into the local health care community.

Early in 1997 Bill assisted a friend dying of lung cancer. Having failed to return a Social Security form to his doctor, Bill’s friend was subsequently cut-off from Disability and Medicare and was being billed for treatments. Working through the system, Mr. Britt cleared the bills and got his friend’s medi-care re-instated within two weeks. Feeling empowered, he decided to start his own organization dedicated to advocating and educating people on health care options.

In 1998 he formed the Association of Patient Advocates, a grass roots organization designed to assist people with disabilities and/or chronic illness, to gain access to healthcare information and services. The APA also works with health care providers to improve services and include patients in healthcare policy decisions.

The APA works in partnership with local communities, city councils and health departments, linking people to available health care resources. “Nobody knows the experience of a certain condition as does someone who has lived with it. We hope to use educated patients to help others and have patients more involved in the policy-making process,” stated Bill.

As a volunteer Patient Advocate he has provided ombudsman services, peer counseling and healthcare access information to seniors, persons with disabilities and/or chronic illness and low income people without medical insurance.

Over the last 20 years, he has spoken at numerous community and healthcare provider meetings in southern California to educate legal, political and healthcare professionals on the new medical cannabis laws and the benefits of medicinal cannabis use.

As a medical cannabis patient and advocate, he has attended hundreds of court hearings to support qualified patients, dragged through the court system by police and judges who continue to ignore the state law that now allows compliant use of medical cannabis. Advising attorneys at first, he eventually became a court qualified cannabis expert and has testified over 100 times throughout Southern California.
