HAEi has many excellent tools and resources to support our growing number of Member Organizations and people with HAE. We designed HAEi Advocacy Academy with our global community in mind – a free, online, cloud-based virtual training platform – accessible from anywhere in the world.
“HAEi Advocacy Academy is an extremely useful resource for anyone. Whether you are an experienced advocate or just starting out, the courses are full of valuable information from skilled advocate leaders giving practical instructions, real-life examples, and case studies”, says Fiona Wardman, HAEi Chief Regional Patient Advocate.
Our virtual training platform has recently been expanded to include a range of case studies that showcase stories and experiences from HAEi Member Organizations. These add to the many educational courses on advocacy, disease-related information, and HAEi resources.
As a global organization, HAEi recognized the need for information and tools to help Member Organizations with every step of the advocacy journey.
“HAEi has a range of advocacy groups under our umbrella, from one person just beginning a patient group to much larger Member Organizations with lots of experience. HAEi Advocacy Academy courses draw on global knowledge and expertise, and there are courses for everyone”, continues Fiona Wardman: “The most popular courses are ‘Building your Organization Part 1 – Getting Started’ to Part six in the series.”
