Edward Guzman, Ombudsman, will present a free WOW! Working on Wellness Radio Forum on Wednesday October 11th at 2:00-3:00 pm on KSQM FM Radio at 91.5 on the radio dial.

He educates consumers and long-term care providers about residents' rights and good care practices, and he promotes community involvement through volunteer opportunities.
Mr. Guzman will share information with the public on nursing homes and other long-term care facilities and services, and on legislative and policy issues. He advocates for residents' rights and quality care in nursing homes, personal care, residential care, and other long-term care facilities, and he promotes the development of citizen organizations, family councils, and resident councils.
