Founded in 2015, our Ambassador Leadership Program supports local community leaders, volunteers and change-makers in their personal pursuits to help people with Parkinson’s live well today. From speaking with individuals and families to presenting at conferences, sharing resources through exhibit tables and participating in local, regional and national advocacy, our Ambassadors are active, passionate volunteers changing how people live with Parkinson’s.
Read on to see how you can get connected with an Ambassador Leader for support or get involved by nominating someone or applying for the program.
Connect with an Ambassador
Annually, our Ambassadors speak with thousands of individuals and families looking for support and community to help them live well with Parkinson’s. Ambassadors are available to speak with you through email, phone, video conference, and in-person. You can look to connect with an Ambassador in your area or reach out to anyone who you think you would connect well with, regardless of location.
We are working to have an Ambassador in all 50 states as well as grow the program globally and are always seeking strong leaders to expand the reach of the Davis Phinney Foundation.
You or someone you know might be an Ambassador if…
- You are a person living with Parkinson’s, care partner or wellness professional passionate about our mission to help people with Parkinson’s live well today
- You are active in your community and are drawn to do more
- You want to meet and engage with other like-minded individuals across the US and Canada
