Coalitions & Collaboration


In a post-COVID world, advocacy organizations will face increased pressure to meet their mandates with fewer resources and fundraising capability. Coalitions offer a simple and effective way to pool resources, share information, improve problem-solving, and increase awareness. In this session, we will investigate the impact of coalitions on patient advocacy and explore best practices for forming, managing, and improving coalitions so that effective patient advocacy can continue through the challenging times ahead.
