There is an extreme need for individual peer support and mentorship that only patients or caregivers can provide based on firsthand experiences. Patients and caregivers who are knowledgeable, resourceful, and willing to help others are all part of the PFIC Ambassador team. We have recognized the impact of ambassadors who understand the specific burden of our community. Not only will ambassadors be available for support in their own communities, but they will also be able to identify the knowledge and resource gaps that each unique part of our population may have and work towards finding solutions. In addition to providing mentorship, support and awareness for PFIC patients and families, ambassadors both govern and guide our organization.
Below is a list of all available ways that you can get involved as a PFIC Ambassador. There is a range of opportunities, so whether you would like to get involved in a structured council or board, be a mentor or simply lend a hand from time to time, all PFIC ambassadors are a vital part to our mission, to improve the lives of PFIC patients and families worldwide.
