PCFA's Ambassadors are trained community volunteers, many with first-hand experience of prostate cancer, who give presentations to workplaces, community groups, and organisations on the importance of awareness and early detection of prostate cancer, and increase awareness in the community through speaking engagements. They also provide informational resources for those who wish to learn more.
The role can be challenging but rewarding, as Ambassadors have the opportunity to educate and encourage others to be more proactive regarding their health.
PCFA has Ambassadors in all states and territories, and are available to speak at events as a free community resource.
Some general points to consider regarding what the Ambassador role requires:
- Strong presentation and public speaking abilities
- Deliver PCFA's evidence-based information about prostate cancer, and present with confidence, dignity, and respect
- Communicate accurately PCFA's policies on testing and key health messaging
- Proficient with technology (Power Point, email, internet)
