We are excited to partner with wikicharites to conduct our pilot program focused on Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS).
What is HS?
HS is a chronic and painful skin condition characterized by inflamed, painful lumps typically forming in areas where skin rubs together, such as the armpits, groin, and buttocks.
Who does HS impact the most?
Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) affects individuals in varying ways, but certain groups are more susceptible. It commonly appears in the late teens or early twenties, with symptoms typically emerging before age 30. HS is more prevalent in women (female-to-male ratio of 3:1). Those with a family history of HS or conditions like obesity and immune-related issues are at a higher risk. Besides physical symptoms, HS’s chronic nature and associated pain impact emotional well-being, self-esteem, and overall quality of life.
Our pilot program aims to explore innovative approaches to managing HS through our wellness tool by providing much-needed relief and improved quality of life for those affected by this challenging condition. Through this initiative, leading medical professionals and researchers to implement patient-centered care navigation and raise awareness about HS within the medical community and beyond. Our goal is to pave the way for better understanding and managing complex medical needs, ultimately offering hope to individuals battling other conditions daily. Stay tuned for updates and progress as we embark on this transformative journey together.
