University of Michigan Scleroderma Peer Mentor Program
The Peer Mentoring Program is designed to help empower patients with Scleroderma to take control of their lives and their healthcare. To be matched with one of our Peer Mentors, please fill out the form below. You will be asked to provide your contact information, some basic information about how scleroderma is affecting you, and what you would like most from a Peer Mentor.
This information will be protected by us and
kept in the strictest confidence, according to HIPAA regulations.
After you submit this form, we will match you with the most appropriate mentor, and they will contact you within a few days. After your first call/email with your Peer Mentor, you will be asked to fill out an evaluation to let us know how the conversation went. If it went well, you and your Mentor can take it from there. If things did not go as you had hoped, we will have another mentor contact you to ensure you are comfortable.
All conversations with your Mentor are kept in strict confidence. Peer Mentors are volunteers of the University of Michigan Health System and have been trained through the Patient and Family Centered Care Program of UMHS.
If you need more information or would like to make a donation to the program, please feel free to contact Jody Fisher, Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
