Meet The Savvybassadors
Meet the members committed to helping us grow and succeed!
"Savvy Coop is a unique way to share our experiences as patients. Most of us remember the horror stories and can tell them over and over. A lot of us are chronically ill and can't work, so why not get paid to tell those same stories!" -Erica
"I love that Savvy Coop is patient owned. Many times when you are suffering from an illness, you don’t feel like you have any power. This helps patients, caregivers and physicians come together and make positive changes."
"I believe the mission is spot on and I appreciate the idea of being the "match.com" of patient insights with healthcare. I think there are opportunities to help see the value and expertise that patients provide."
"I love being in a co-op that helps me be proactive towards my health by advocating for others who may have quieter voices and for those who just aren't ready to talk openly about their disease. I want to continue to be a vessel for others to feel free and talk openly."
"There is nothing more powerful for any patient than to know that you are not alone in your journey and to know that what you are experiencing is important enough to share with others for whom you may be able to make a difference - and get paid for your sharing."
"My favorite part about Savvy Coop is that it values the patients input and that you can also make money with the gigs!"
"So many patients go unheard, mainly because they don't know that their voices matter too. Savvy & other patient groups educate & empower patients to use their voices for their own and the general good."
"There aren't that many times in our lives when we stumble upon opportunities like this. It is great that there are Gigs that allow us to give insight, but more than that, we are a co-op and patients are co-owners."
"I love the idea of a co-op to connect patients and researchers. As someone who lives far from an academic medical center and clinical trials, I find it refreshing that Savvy Coop brings opportunities to patients."
"My favorite thing about Savvy Coop is its network of strong advocates and patient voices that are collectively building towards something strong."
"Savvy gives patients and their families the opportunity to become engaged in activities related to their disease area, to participate in projects and research, and to proudly have ownership of the cooperative they have joined."
"Savvy Coop gives you an opportunity to be a co-owner of a company that is helping patients have a voice in the health industry."
"It's inspiring and motivating to see Savvy Coop help patients make something positive out of very challenging life experiences. It has tremendous potential to grow and I'm excited to be a part of it."
"I have been with Savvy from the very beginning and was so excited for Savvy to open and take memberships. I am very proud to be a Savvy Pioneer Member."
"I believe in Savvy's mission, and think empowering patients is the future of healthcare."
"At Savvy Coop, we're all unique and have different experiences with our illnesses. I am a big believer in getting patients involved in various aspects of healthcare."
"I love being part of an organization that values my experiences and whose purpose is turning those experiences into realistic improvements to health care."
"My favorite thing about Savvy Coop it is patient-driven & patient owned."
"I am a proud member of Savvy Coop and support the mission and goals of including patients as valued voices and stakeholders in healthcare."
"I like the people who are Savvy and think the co-op is doing some great things. I believe that Savvy will shape the future of medicine - and that's what I am all about."
"Savvy makes me feel empowered to communicate, and possibly to educate, about my chronic illness."
"Savvy Coop places a priority on making all patients feel valued and respected for their insights by realizing that even with the same diagnosis, we may have vastly different experiences."
"Savvy not only cares about my patient experience, it rewards me for it! As a coop member, I'm encouraged to speak my mind, vote on important issues & collect my share of the profits. It's a total win-win!"
"I am always interested in broadening opportunities for others and helping people get more involved."
"I think Savvy Coop is fantastic and great for educating, advocating, and overall helping the chronic illness community!"
"I love the prospect of having my voice heard and participating in gigs. I also love the thought of being a co owner and being a Savvybassador because I quite simply love everything about Savvy."
"Savvy Coop gives patients more of a voice and upper-hand in their care, and in how the healthcare field respects and treats patients."
"Savvy Coop is an empowering and safe space to share advice and opinions about what we are savvy about!"
"Savvy Coop is a place to start when you don't know where to start."
