Take the opportunity to influence how young patients are treated
As a young coeliac you can now join European Patients Forum’s Youth Group to help communicating the needs and expectations of young health care patients in Europe. They are currently actively looking for new young people to join them.
The EPF Youth Group is made up of young patient representatives between 15-29 years old. They all have different chronic conditions and they come from all over the EU. You should also already be a member of a local patient organization, such as your coeliac member society if they are a member of the Association of European Coeliac Societies (AOECS).
EPF Youth Group members are expected to advocate the youth perspective as patients to ensure it is taken into consideration and to be actively involved to raise the voice of young patients within patient organizations on both the European and national level.
As a Youth Group member, you will have the opportunity to be a part of shaping EU policies concerning young patients, provide real insights for real change as well as network and collaborate with other young patients from all over Europe.
