Why Participate in Patient Congress?

For more information:

For more than 22 years, Patient Advocate Foundation’s mission has been to serve one patient at a time by providing sustained, tangible help based on their individual circumstances. That commitment to personalized assistance remains true today.

We take what we learn from helping tens of thousands of patients and their families and alongside our sister organization - National Patient Advocate Foundation - advocate for improved engagement of the patient voice on key issues in the healthcare system and promote change that will positively impact the patient experience.

Patient Congress participants are volunteers that have made a commitment to improving healthcare for patients in their community. Participants join Patient Congress with a variety of personal, processional and advocacy experience. Each session is structured to be accessible enough to someone completely new to advocacy or health policy, while also challenging our participants who have worked with us for over a decade. In order to ensure that participants have a well rounded experience, panels include a mix of policy, communications and practical advocacy advice, with an emphasis on interaction sessions that directly engage the audience.
