About our Patient Advocacy
No one knows their condition and the barriers they face better than our patients, and we believe in enabling them to be their own best advocates for better care. We offer two unique advocacy programs that help at the patient organization level.
These $10,000 grants are intended to help promote and develop advocacy development on the local level by helping further an existing advocacy initiative; providing assistance in developing a new initiative; or building a grassroots database, for example. LEAD Grants enable local organizations to implement special advocacy initiatives.Learn More
