University of Utah Health Care & Primary Children's Hospital: Create a Center for Eosinophilic Disorders

This petition had 404 supporters


Eosinophilic disorders are an emerging health care concern for many individuals and families in Utah and surrounding regions. Current estimates point to this condition affecting up to 1% of the population. Eosinophilic disorders require numerous resources such as allergists, GI doctors, pathologists, dieticians, social work, and management of this condition is very dynamic – requiring frequent diet, medication, and clinical follow-up. Patients have improved outcomes when providers can easily communicate results and coordinate care plan changes in a timely manner. As a growing community being diagnosed with these disorders, we need our best resources to come together to help provide more consistent and coordinated care.

If you, your child, family member, friend, or neighbor is affected by these disorders, and you have felt or seen the frustration and set-backs caused by a lack of coordinated care, please share your thoughts below and consider a signature of support.

Utah houses a handful of experts in eosinophilic disorders across several divisions that are involved in clinical care and novel, promising research in the field. We believe University of Utah Health Care and Primary Children's Hospital to be well suited to create a Center for Eosinophilic Disorders to provide the coordinated and managed care that is desperately needed. We call on them to hear and consider the many voices of this petition.

 

Thank you!
