Patti Thompson, CADC has worked for Legacy Medical Group providing social services and addiction support in a primary care setting for six years. As part of the team in a Resident Teaching Clinic, she works with patients who are either uninsured or under-insured and with patients who have multiple psycho-social needs that prevent them from making positive change in their health and well-being. Patti has helped develop a culture of “wellness teaching” rather than “disease management” by networking with community members, including Sarahjoy Marsh. Due to this networking her clinic offers services above and beyond the experience of many of its patients, such as yoga, low-cost healthy cooking classes, and wellness support groups. Patti volunteered with Living Yoga as a teacher in the DePaul Treatment Center for two years and is excited to share the life-changing benefits of yoga with as many people as possible.
