The Association recognizes that there are currently people with many types of experience and training who assist the public with healthcare advocacy. These include medically trained healthcare advocates, advocates in non-profits, individuals who have learned “on the job” helping a friend or family member, researchers and educators in the field of healthcare advocacy, and advocates working in the fields of public policy and legislation. Each of these groups brings a unique contribution, specialization or focus to this growing field, and each is critical to the development of the profession. NAHAC embraces this multiplicity of approaches, recognizing that, in the end, the public will have a wide choice of services and advocates and this diversity of approaches enhances the profession.
The National Association of Healthcare Advocacy Consultants (NAHAC) exists to improve the way people interact with and experience the health care system by supporting public education to foster effective self-advocacy. NAHAC is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit corporation and your donations are deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
New members are required to read and agree to the NAHAC Code of Ethics.
NAHAC continues to lead the development of the field of healthcare advocacy through the dedicated efforts of its members on six committees. We invite your active participation and input. Your unique experience, time and talent could make a significant difference in the entire practice of healthcare advocacy going forward.
If interested in working on one of these committees while becoming personally enriched by contact with other leading practitioners in the field of healthcare advocacy, contact the chairperson of the committee of your choice, listed here:
