About the Event:

Presenter: Diane Bark, Parent and Caregiver Advocate

Mrs. Bark is Chair of the Board of NF Mid-Atlantic, a non-profit organization that helps those suffering with the genetic disorder Neurofibromatosis in the areas of awareness, education and support. She currently volunteers as a Parent Advocate at Project Heal, a non-profit organization affiliated with Johns Hopkins Hospital/Kennedy Krieger, helping low income families advocate for special needs children in the educational process. Mrs. Bark also works full time as a financial advisor in her own business.

It has become her passion to help and support parents who are struggling to care for their special needs children in the educational and medical arenas. Mrs. Bark's mission is to share her story as a caregiver for her mother, husband and son with others so they know they are not alone in their journey.

Mrs. Bark is currently attending UCLA's Certificate Program for Patient Advocacy and hopes to one day work in a hospital setting helping low income single parents with their challenged children.

This is a free training for parents, family members and professionals.
