Become a Student Ambassador!

Join us!

The Fertility Appreciation Collaborative (FACTS) is looking for health professional students across the country to be a part of our Student Ambassador Program!

 

As a FACTS Ambassador you will network with FABM knowledgeable physicians while educating your peers about fertility awareness on your campus and community. You will have the opportunity to participate in research, present at medical conferences, and also gain valuable insight into incorporating FABMs into your practice.

What’s In It for You?

Expand your Clinical Toolbox:
Learn about FABMs and become trained to teach one or more of these methods. Over 60% of women would be interested in learning an FABM to plan for or prevent pregnancy so effective communication about FABMs is a key asset to clinical practice.
Do Research:
Participate in research projects with FACTS nationally or on the local level. These projects can fulfill research requirements. We can provide some suggestions or are interested in supporting your bright ideas!
Get Published:
Write articles and blog posts or create videos and educational resources to be used for internal and external FACTS marketing and awareness campaigns.
Develop Your Skills:
Enhance your public speaking, event planning, and communication skills. Learn to write abstracts and design research projects and
presentations. Apply to present talks or posters at regional and national conferences.
Attend National Meetings:
Participate in national medical conferences and regular FACTS meetings. There are plenty of opportunities to present or exhibit at the national level.
Enhance your Networking Skills:
Make new friends and connections across the country with peers interested in FABMs through interactions with your fellow ambassadors and through regional and national conferences. At national meetings there will also be opportunities to meet other physicians who incorporate FABMs into their practices and who can serve as role models and career mentors.

What will you do?

FACTS supports our Student Ambassadors on many levels. We encourage you to get involved with whatever interests you in the field of fertility awareness and education. Some possible ideas include:

Event Planning – Host speaking events on campus to bring awareness about FABMs to your school.
Teach FABMs – Educate women about their cycle so you can empower them to care for their health.
Public Speaking – Present the FACTS about fertility to your peers and gain valuable professional experience.
Exhibit with FACTS – Share the FACTS about fertility at national and regional conferences and at local health fairs to engage your peers and community.
Outreach through Social Media – Get involved in social media marketing and create and publish content about FABMs.

Do You Have What it Takes?
