Here are some ways to become an Ambassador today:
The Armenian Ambassadors of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles are a group of community members, organizations and businesses dedicated to creating hope and building healthier futures for all children. Our goal is to help ensure that Children’s Hospital has the best resources to care for our children. We are grateful for the opportunity to share our philanthropic heritage with Children’s Hospital by giving back to a community that has welcomed our families.
Care Ambassadors invest in clinical care excellence by supporting the Institute for Nursing and Interprofessional Research (INIR). The INIR gives nurses and patient care experts at CHLA the structure and mentorship needed to expand their roles beyond the bedside and conduct research that will transform pediatric health care.
The Endocrinology Ambassadors of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles are a community of grateful patient families committed to ensuring that children and families living with endocrine disorders receive outstanding comprehensive medical care and behavioral health services. Since 2014, the Endocrinology Ambassadors have dedicated their efforts to increase access to psychological care for patients and families treated in the Center for Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism. Thanks to their tireless fundraising, the Embedded Psychology Program was launched by the Center for Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism in July 2016. As of December 2018, the Endocrinology Ambassadors have raised $221,457 to offset the cost of care that is unreimbursed by commercial insurance.
The Endocrinology Ambassadors are also committed to promoting awareness for the Center’s specialists – psychologists, nurse educators, dietitians and social workers — who, with our outstanding physicians and staff, care for more than 12,000 children each year.
The mission of the Heart Ambassadors is to join together to support each other and help give the Heart Institute of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles the best tools to care for our children. We are an official group of the Ambassadors program, made up of families and friends who have been touched by the expert care that is only found at the Heart Institute.
The Junior Ambassadors of Children's Hospital Los Angeles are kids and teens from the community who support the hospital’s life saving work. The program offers kids the opportunity to work together and become incredible hospital representatives and fundraisers. It’s a powerful and inspiring model of kids helping kids.
The Neurosurgery Ambassadors of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) are a growing community of grateful patient families and supporters who know firsthand that it takes a special team of experts to provide the very best care for children who need neurosurgery.
