Become a PFIC Network Ambassador

 

The PFIC Network is a community of patient and parent advocates who work together to make our voice heard. We identify our own needs along with the needs of our community, and work together to develop solutions and resources. We encourage the help of other community members who are willing to bring various perspectives to our meetings and chats. Whether you become a mentor, join a committee or advisory board, or help to give feedback on programs and resources, ambassadors help us to keep our community patient centered.
