About Me: 

Becky Martins is a patient advocate who brings a strong representation of the patient and family healthcare experience to Consumers Advancing Patient Safety. Martin’s advocacy spirit derives from the days when she was driving her father 150 miles round-trip, three days a week to dialysis treatments. She spent countless hours at the dialysis unit visiting with patients and their families. Through their stories, she learned firsthand that her father was not alone in challenges he encountered living with a chronic illness. Their shared experience became the impetus for her advocacy on behalf of end stage renal disease patients. In 1996, Becky was the recipient of the Kidney Foundation of Maine Board of Trustees Service Award for 10 years of service.

Following the preventable death of her father in 2000, Becky’s advocacy expanded to include patient safety. Martins has served on the National Patient Safety Foundation’s Patient and Family Advisory Councils, on the Maine Health Data Organization Board, is a Founding Advisor of Consumers Advancing Patient Safety, a consumer representative on the Maine Quality Forum Advisory Council, in addition to being active in numerous local and national consumer health organizations. The 121st Maine Legislature presented Martins with a Special Sentiment for her patient safety advocacy.
