Help Us Plan Our Next Research Advocate Training Course

It might surprise you to know that some of the key players in the development of colorectal cancer research are regular folks like you. Patient advocates, as they are called, add the much-needed patient perspective to the development of clinical trials and can be the crucial voice that determines their success.

Fight Colorectal Cancer is developing a program to train regular people impacted by colorectal cancer – patients, caregivers, or family members – to participate in research advocacy. If you’ve been wanting to step up your efforts to fight colorectal cancer in new and exciting ways, we want to hear from you. But first, a few questions:

  • Do you know (or think you can learn) basic scientific concepts?
  • Do you think you can comfortably ask critical questions of people with big titles and lots of letters after their names?
  • Are you willing to voice the patient perspective on potential colorectal cancer research topics?
  • If you can see yourself in a role like this, tell us. Please complete a brief, two question survey to tell us a little bit about yourself.

    Based on the answers we receive to this survey, we’ll be launching a research advocate program later this spring.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide us your feedback on how to make the program as valuable as possible to advocates like you.
