Ambassador Leadership Program

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.

The Ambassador Leadership Program is supported in part by:

The Davis Phinney Ambassador Leadership Program also receives support from the Rosina K. Sapir Ambassador Fund and Louisiana Walks for Parkinson’s.
