What's New

Peer Navigator Program Provides Personalized Support

Our soon-to-be-launched Peer Navigator Program (PNP) will provide personalized, one-on-one support and resources for all people facing HBOC. Users need only to complete a short intake form to be matched with a compassionate, trained volunteer with a similar situation.

VolunteerFORCE Academy

VolunteerFORCE Academy

The VolunteerFORCE Academy is a new comprehensive
online training program that prepares our volunteers to
help others who are facing HBOC. Volunteers are trained
to provide information, support and resources to help high-risk individuals navigate their healthcare options and make informed medical decisions. The VolunteerFORCE Academy provides training for Peer Support Group Leaders, Helpline volunteers, online message board and chat room moderators, community liaisons, and FORCE Research Advocate Program volunteers who sit on grant review panels and represent the HBOC patient perspective. Sign up today to volunteer for FORCE.



We welcome your feedback. Please send your comments to Sue Friedman or fill out our Newsletter Feedback Form.
