The Patient Action Leader Council is Malecare’s way to activate your voice. Membership is open to all diagnosed men, their family members, and friends. The Council developed from a series of focus groups Malecare held in 2014.
The Patient Action Leader Council meets twice a year via ninety-minute teleconferences to discuss your suggestions about advocacy, engagement and creating meaningful change. Board members will participate in at least one call per year and will be encouraged to email their thoughts between meetings.
The Patient Action Leader Council has had several major successes, which you can read about in the articles listed here. What will be our next success?
