Volunteer Opportunities Board of Directors
Please understand that we are all parents of children that require extra attention. Our first priority is our family. We stand by the saying "family first". If you decide to take a board position and find your families' needs are affecting your time, please tell us. We can either replace your board position with someone else, or have your position on hold until your family is well. In order for us to be successful and help not only our own children but the children that follow with Protein Intolerance, we need to come together as parents to educate our communities.

The organization can not take any action without the approval of a majority of Board Members. (i.e. No one person can "run" the organization.)

Responsibilities Include:

Medical Advisory Board
Participation is strictly voluntary and there is no compensation. You will receive acknowledgement of your participation in our organization on our website and in certain printed materials. We will promote any books or publications that you may have by listing them and/or links to them on our website. If desired, we will list your medical practice information on our website. Best of all, you will receive the satisfaction of knowing that you are giving back to the community and helping to end the needless suffering of countless protein intolerant children and their families.

Our mission is to improve the lives of protein intolerant children and their families by providing information, resources, support forums, and by promoting public awareness and supporting medical research.

We plan to fulfill this mission by accomplishing the following goals: Who can be a Medical Advisor?
Any Registered Nurse, Nurse Practitioner, Medical Doctor, Doctor of Osteopathy, or Research Professional interested in volunteering his or her health care knowledge to help The PIC Foundation fulfill our mission and goals is eligible to participate.

How do I participate?
Interested parties may submit their CV or resume to The PIC Foundation Board of Directors. We will conduct a telephone interview to make sure we are a "good fit". Once appointed to the panel, the new volunteer will sign the Medical Advisor Agreement and serve a renewable term of two years.

What are the functions and obligations of the Medical Advisor?
There is no set schedule or commitment for participation. The PIC Foundation Board of Directors will contact you when your support is needed. There are no regular meetings to attend and no travel is involved. Attendance at our annual education seminar is encouraged, but not required. Almost all contact is via email or telephone including voting. If the Panel members or The PIC Foundation Board of Directors deems a meeting necessary, it will be scheduled at the Panel member's convenience via conference call. The average time spent is about one hour per month at your convenience.

Responsibilities Include

General Volunteer
We are still in need of people who have a few minutes a month to donate to help The PIC Foundation. We are looking for people who would be interested in doing research, designing and promoting products, setting up and maintaining database of people who receive emails, mailers etc. We also have other areas where your help would be greatly appreciated.
