2020 Elevate Ambassador Criteria and Application

Improving Cancer Survivorship Care Begins In Your Backyard

Elevate Ambassadors are advocates, leaders, and survivors who ensure quality cancer care is delivered. Ambassadors receive mentorship, support, networking opportunities, and in-person training to develop and execute a plan-of-action to improve survivorship care in their community.

It may seem like no small task for Elevate Ambassadors to make a difference in cancer care in their communities — that’s because it isn’t. Yet, it’s their opportunity to get the training and mentorship they need to successfully achieve a rewarding result for local survivors who are their neighbors, colleagues, family friends, and more.

Criteria

An Ambassador must be:

  • A patient advocate, age 18 or older, who has been touched by cancer.
  • A member of the NCCS Cancer Policy and Advocacy Team (CPAT). Not a member? Click here to sign up for free.
  • Committed to working at the local level to improve survivorship care.
  • A resident of the United States of America.

Preferred Expertise & Composition. Ideal Ambassadors have general knowledge of survivorship care and skills to develop and maintain relationships with individuals in order to host presentations and trainings to cancer care teams.

Program and Time Commitment

  • Attendance at an in-person training in Washington, D.C in late summer/fall 2020. Travel and lodging for Ambassadors will be paid for by NCCS.
  • Monthly learning collaborative calls/webinars with educational topics.
  • Mentorship and support by NCCS team.
  • Report progress on project plan goals and action items.
  • Ambassadors will be encouraged to identify a “sponsor/partner/mentor” who will be a point-of-contact for them and work collaboratively with them. Ambassadors will develop goals, timeline, outcomes, etc. and use this individual as a source of accountability, in addition to NCCS support.
