STYPA 2021

Summer Training Course for Young Patient Advocates

The Summer Training Course for Young Patient Advocates (STYPA) is a European Patients’ Forum (EPF) training dedicated to young patient advocates (18-30 years old).

The purpose of STYPA is to teach young patients everything they need to know about patient advocacy, while networking with other young patients, attending online group hangouts, learning from tailored webinars and developing their own advocacy project!  

Our trainers will fully support them in their new patient advocate journey and help maximise their leadership potential.

As participants, they will collaborate with other young patient advocates from all over Europe, from May to October 2021.
