Call for VPPRN Patient Champions

The Vasculitis Patient-Powered Research Network (VPPRN) is seeking volunteers to serve as

Patient Champions for each form of vasculitis.

What is a VPPRN Patient Champion?

Patient Champions are volunteers who interact with other individuals with a similar diagnosis of vasculitis, their caregivers, and with the larger vasculitis community.  They are highly engaged and passionate voices in the vasculitis community who understand the value of research – research is the key to increased understanding of vasculitis and better treatment options.  Patient champions help raise awareness, motivate, and encourage others by reinforcing the important role patients play in vasculitis research.  

VPPRN Patient Champions also serve as resources for ad-hoc assignments such as focus groups and beta testers for VPPRN online surveys as well as assisting with VPPRN recruitment, research studies, and other initiatives.
