Oley Ambassadors are integral to Oley efforts. Home nutrition support consumers or caregivers themselves, these volunteers understand the challenges those requiring home IV nutrition and/or tube feeding face, and recognize the value of Oley resources and connections.
They can answer questions, share their experiences, or just listen, whether in person, by phone, or online. Please reach out to them when you want to connect—they look forward to hearing from you! The list of volunteers is organized by therapy, and within each therapy, alphabetical by state, with Canadian and foreign Ambassadors at the end. The mailing address for each foreign Ambassador is available upon request to Oley offices, if you'd like to contact one by mail. When e-mailing Ambassadors, please include "Oley" in the subject line so they are sure to open your e-mail.

Do you think you might like to volunteer as an Oley Ambassador? The main goals of an Ambassador are to offer peer-to-peer support to other HPEN consumers and caregivers, to help Oley Foundation outreach and support efforts, and to heighten awareness of Oley resources in their geographic area, social networking community, clinical circles, etc. The “job” responsibilities can be flexible based on the Ambassador’s skills, available time, and interest.
