What is the role of an Ambassador?

The Ambassadors Scheme was launched in 2018. It brings together enthusiastic, friendly members who promote pharmacology, and the Society, by sharing their enthusiasm with others. Our Ambassadors play a very important role by sharing their science, championing pharmacology and representing the Society to the world.​

The Ambassador’s role is:​

  1.     to connect the whole pharmacology community with the Society and to the support we offer to them ​
  2.     to engage the public with pharmacology ​

Each Ambassador might carry out their role in a different way, with different activities. Activities are flexible, and recognise the unique context, local opportunities, personal experience and interests of the Ambassador who is running them. For activities that engage the public, the audience can range from patients, community and school groups, to key stakeholders like policy makers. ​

We welcome lots of different ideas for activities, and we offer support and resources to help you plan and carry them out.
