BCPA Lapel Pin
The Patient Advocate Certification Board proudly introduces the BCPA Lapel Pin – a tangible symbol of the achievement for individual patient and health care advocates who have earned the Board Certified Patient Advocate credential.
At PACB, we believe every patient deserves access to a qualified and professional patient or health care advocate who can help them to navigate the healthcare system and to ensure that their rights and needs are respected. In support of that goal, PACB has established a scholarship program to support patient and health care advocates and to encourage diversity in the pool of professionals holding the Board Certified Patient Advocate (BCPA) credential. Honoring this goal, 100% of profits from the sale of each pin will benefit the Scholarship Fund.
The pin is available to any BCPA in good standing. Also please consider making a donation to the scholarship fund with your order. Simply click on the amount, or add in the amount of your choosing. The total will be calculated and reflected in the complete transaction field. Note: PACB is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. All donations are deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Please contact your tax professional for details.
