Debra Ambassador Program
Launched in 2009, the mission of the Ambassadors Program is to educate speakers all over the United States to raise EB awareness. Although still in the early stages of actualization, Debra hopes to establish a working pilot that could then be refined and replicated. Upon completion of training, Debra’s first group of dedicated volunteers will begin to visit local organizations, hospitals and birthing centers to spread greater understanding about the disease.
