50-State Network Oath

Unknown

I pledge to find ways to advocate (however great or small), in spite of living with a chronic condition.

As a patient advocate, from this day on, I will:

  1. Find ways to tell my story.
  2. Help those who feel they have no voice.
  3. Demand increased access to care— with no expectations.
  4. Fight the good fight for me and for our community.
  5. Acknowledge that self-care is important and know that taking care of myself is the first step to taking care of others.

I affirm that I understand all the rights and responsibilities of being a patient advocate and that I will faithfully discharge my duties to the best of my ability.
