Our advocacy process
1. Contact us
You contact the Center because you or someone you know faces a serious or life-threatening illness. Or you complete the online application form, below.
2. We reach out to you and learn more about your needs
A student patient advocate will contact you to schedule a telephone appointment, usually within two or three business days. Plan for a 30-45 minute call. On the phone, we’ll identify key issues and whether our advocacy services are a good fit.
3. We establish an advocacy relationship
If we mutually agree that our advocacy services would be a good fit, you would be paired with a student advocate pr team, who will usually work with you on a longer-term basis. Our advocacy relationships generally last between three to five months.
4. We help you reach your goals
We close a case when our role has been fulfilled, all advocacy avenues have been exhausted, or when you have resolved the issues you called on us to help you with.
