I generally do not charge a fee as my goal is to raise awareness of antimicrobial resistances, sepsis, and hospital acquired infections. That said, please remember as a patient I am giving you my time to inspire your company or institution and no payment is turned down.
Sponsors always pay for flights, hotel, ground transportation, and all incurred expenses during my stay. Patient advocates take time and effort to speak at your request, so this is appreciated. I hold a valid passport for international travel.
Honorariums are graciously accepted, as part of the award is granted to agencies that help fight infections or bring awareness to them.
In case of sponsors that are small, non profit, or do not have time to bring me out, I have given speeches via teleconference using Web X and Go To Meeting..
