Awareness Ambassadors are on the front line for helping the Foundation achieve our 5-Year Breakthrough Goal! Our goal: “To shorten the time to diagnose Sjögren’s by 50% in 5 years,” will only be achieved by volunteers helping to educate their community and local medical professionals about Sjögren’s and its various manifestations.

Awareness Ambassadors help to educate their community and local medical professionals about Sjögren’s and only when Sjögren’s is recognized as a serious disease will patients receive the care needed. 

“By becoming an Awareness Ambassador, you will be helping to increase awareness of Sjögren’s – a very important cause I have been proud to represent and lead since becoming the CEO. Please join with me as we make a difference in how Sjögren’s is perceived in both the medical field and general public.” - Steven Taylor, SSF CEO

Over 4 million Americans are estimated to have Sjögren's, yet fewer than 2.5 million have been diagnosed. Your voice will help us make Sjögren’s a household name! To learn more about becoming an Ambassador, please contact Michele Champigny by phone at (518) 610-5192 or by email at mchampigny@sjogrens.org

The SSF also wants to recognize The Carroll Petrie Foundation whose generous grant, supporting the Awareness Ambassador program, will allow us to provide the materials and support needed to increase awareness in communities across the United States.
