Our Spinal Champion Advocates volunteer their time to speak with other patients about resources that they found helpful in their own patient journey. Spinal Champion Advocates do not offer professional medical advice nor make diagnoses. Rather, they share their own patient experiences. They are not employees of the National Spine Health Foundation. Spinal Champion Advocates may choose not to respond to patient messages that appear to be spam or abuse. they are not required to respond, they are encouraged to forward requests to the NSHF Program Manager. The National Spine Health Foundation reserves the right to remove them from the Spinal Champion Advocates program at any time.
