Information for Media and Speaking Opportunities
Private patient advocacy as a career field is new, and AdvoConnection is leading the charge. Patients throughout North America are turning to AdvoConnection’s member advocates and navigators to help them survive and recover their quality of life, and their financial stability.
Our members, and our site, have been featured and quoted in media such as Forbes, US News & World Report, MSNBC, CNN, O Magazine, Scientific American, About.com, Woman’s Day, Health Magazine, and The Wall Street Journal. (see master list of advocacy mentions)
Here you’ll find an excellent overview, the “state of patient advocacy”.
If you are in search of background information, statistics, quotes or local contact people for your reporting, we invite you to do a search of this site as if you were a patient, then contact one of the advocates in your results.
If you have trouble identifying the right advocate, need to speak with someone who can help you find a good candidate for interviews or speaking opportunities, or simply need additional information about the profession, please contact us:
- By email: info (at) aphadvocates.org
- By phone: 1-352-459-0509 This number takes messages only but we are often able to return your call within minutes.
(Note: if you are a patient or caregiver, do not call this number. With apologies, we cannot help you because we are not advocates ourselves. We will not return your call.)
We look forward to hearing from you and helping you help your viewers and readers better understand how advocacy can be useful to them.
