Health Ambassador Program
PSR-LA offers ongoing support, resources, and professional development opportunities to health professionals interested in advocating for public health, environmental justice, or nuclear policies.
What is the Health Ambassador Program (HAP)?
Health professionals play an essential role in advocating for public health policies that protect communities across Los Angeles and Southern California. That’s why PSR-LA offers our Health Ambassador Program or HAP, which provides ongoing support, resources, and professional development opportunities to health professionals interested in advocating for public health, environmental justice, or nuclear policies.
Our Health Ambassadors work alongside community advocates to engage in direct policy advocacy with legislators, decision-makers, and the media. PSR-LA’s Health Ambassador Program will provide you with the training, information and resources needed to be an effective advocate — from speaking at public hearings to raising awareness about your patients’ needs, you will use your medical skills and knowledge to advocate for health-protective policies on behalf of your community.
We welcome medical doctors, nurses, public health workers, residents, retirees, students, and other allied health care professionals to become a PSR-LA Health Ambassador.
Participation in the Health Ambassador Program is free — we fund this program through the generous contributions of our dues-paying members.
