VPPRN Patient Ambassadors

The VPPRN is seeking volunteers to serve as a Patient Ambassador for each form of vasculitis.

What is a Patient Ambassador?

Patient Ambassadors are trained, informed volunteers who interact with other individuals with a similar diagnosis of vasculitis, their caregivers, healthcare providers, and with the larger community. They will also serve as resources for ad-hoc assignments such as focus groups and beta testers for VPPRN online surveys as well as help with recruitment to VPPRN membership, studies, and other initiatives.
