Clinical Trials Ambassadors Program

If you are an adult patient or parent of a pediatric patient who has participated in a clinical trial for Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, and feel passionate about helping advance research, you may be interested in applying to become a Clinical Trials Ambassador. The goal of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s Clinical Trials Ambassadors program is to encourage participation in clinical trials for inflammatory bowel diseases and ultimately help move critical research forward. Your experience with clinical trials can help inspire others to participate. Responsibilities of ambassadors include:

  • Sharing your story and experiences on clinical trials
  • Providing feedback on programs, and educational resources related to clinical trials
  • Partnering with the Foundation to spread awareness through outreach activities, including distribution of the Clinical Trials Community resources in local communities, and connecting with patients or other key stakeholders

At this time, we are no longer taking applications, but if you have questions about the program, please contact Catherine Dermody at cdermody@crohnscolitisfoundation.org
