Volunteer as a Chapter Leader

Volunteer to be a point person in your region, and help CHS recruit others to help spread awareness of hemochromatosis and provide leadership within your community! Chapters are being formed across the country, and we are seeking new volunteers to fill roles of Chapter Leader to lead their local Chapter and the volunteers who work as part of a team to support Chapter activities.

If you are interested in becoming a Chapter Leader, or if you would like to plan awareness events in your area where there are currently no Chapters, please contact Liz at lcharyna@toomuchiron.ca.
