Are you or is someone you love living with a chronic health condition? Do you pride yourself on overcoming everyday health challenges? Are you passionate about helping others? Join Health Monitor’s team of Community Health Ambassadors, and we’ll give you the tools and training you need to inspire your friends and neighbors to live a better, healthier life.
What’s a community health ambassador (CHA)?
Health Monitor’s CHAs are passionate, dedicated volunteers who spread messages of hope, healing and education to people living with cancer, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and other health conditions.
What will you do?
Participate in community events, like health fairs, hospital open houses, health events at houses of worship, senior centers and more. We won’t send you out empty-handed! Along with copies of our trusted patient education publications, we’ll provide you with an official Community Health Ambassador badge, personalized flyers and other tools.
How you’ll make a difference
By becoming a CHA, you can . . .
Raise awareness: “As a Health Monitor Community Health Ambassador, I can help educate and raise awareness on various health and medical issues. Being an ambassador has granted me the tools to reach out and inform people.”—Ginamarie Russo, New York
Educate and inspire: “The printed materials Health Monitor Network provides their ambassadors are full of education and awareness that will help my community make wiser decisions about their personal health.”—Carolyn Waygood, Florida
Improve patient care: “I’m proud to be a Community Health Ambassador. To help bridge the gap between the doctor and patient, to take part in this process—it’s not only a privilege, it’s an honor.” —Elizabeth Wald, New York
Lead by example: “In the beginning, it seemed like a monumental task. I thought, ‘How can just one average guy spread the word about living healthy with diabetes and why would anyone be inspired by me?’ I quickly learned that people were interested in my story because I had walked in their shoes and have the same health concerns that they have.”—Mark House, New Jersey
