We need you to help create change!

In 2023, we will be working on two projects in The Advocacy Exchange:

  • The creation of a resource to help patients and caregivers navigate racism and discrimination in the healthcare system
  • The creation of a self-assessment tool to learn the patient voice landscape and identify where advocates may want to use their voices

We welcome you to co-create change with other advocates in one or both of these projects. If you'd like to sign up or just learn more, please click the button below to get involved!
