The next volunteer training class will begin the week of July 25, 2023. If you are interested in serving as a patient advocate, this training is right for you! What is a patient advocate?
Patient advocates provide a calming, friendly face who walks with a patient through their appointment and ensures their needs are met during their time at the clinic. The advocate discusses non-medical topics with the patient, such as her support system and any emotional, spiritual, safety, or financial concerns she may have. We provide the dialogue and training advocates need to feel secure and ready to support women in need. We do require a three to four hour weekly commitment for this role.
