The Huntsman-Intermountain Adolescent and Young Adult (HI-AYA) program is recruiting members for its Patient and Family Board. The board supports the mission of the HI-AYA Cancer Care Program by advising the program team and advocating for patient and survivor needs. AYAs are people diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 39.


We are looking for people who have a passion for helping the AYA cancer population and who consider themselves caregivers of current or former AYA patients. A caregiver is anyone who provides emotional support, helps with decision-making, accompanies the patient to appointments, coordinates medical care, or helps manage finances.


You do not need to live in the Salt Lake metro area to serve on the board. Survivors and caregivers from around the Intermountain West are welcome and encouraged.


Board Member Responsibilities

  • Advocate for AYA patients and survivors
  • Review HI-AYA program materials and services for patient-friendliness
  • Provide feedback by phone or e-mail on research proposals and grant applications
  • Attend quarterly board meetings (meetings are usually scheduled outside of business hours)
