An NOF Ambassador is a well-informed, passionate, and often persuasive individual who cares deeply about those who suffer from osteoporosis. Ambassadors are adept at making an impact and sparking positive change in their field, sector or community. The role of an Ambassador is to advise NOF leadership, and to help make inroads in the medical, business and philanthropic sectors within their communities. Involvement is tailored to each Ambassador’s areas of interest, time constraints and expertise. The Ambassador chooses when, how and on what issues she or he would like to be involved.
