FRAXA Volunteer Ambassadors

Who are FRAXA Ambassadors?

FRAXA Ambassadors are volunteers who represent FRAXA Research Foundation in their communities. Our ambassadors are leaders who help us share the latest information about Fragile X syndrome and research to find effective treatments and ultimately a cure. They advance FRAXA’s mission by helping with our fundraising efforts and building our community of families and friends. They also serve as local Fragile X contacts for families in their community to connect with and to share treatment approaches, behavior strategies, and other support services in their areas.
