Imagine a World Where Doctors Understand People with ME/CFS and Long COVID

Imagine a world where your doctor can diagnose your disease and understand how to offer the right support.

Open Medicine Foundation (OMF) and the Bateman Horne Center (BHC) created the Medical Education Resource Center to help patients and providers with the resources they need to reduce suffering and manage symptoms.

Read this powerful testimony from one of the individuals whose life has been touched by this partnership:

"I want to express my sincere gratitude for the educational lectures you share on YouTube. Thanks to the invaluable information provided, both my cardiologist and primary care physician were able to diagnose and assist me in managing orthostatic intolerance. I am now experiencing a notable improvement in my overall well-being. While I may not be entirely free of health issues, I am certainly better equipped to navigate and manage my condition. This progress is a testament to the effectiveness of the strategies I've learned and implemented, largely due to the educational resources you provide. I may not be in perfect health, but I am undoubtedly better at managing my illness, and for that, I am immensely grateful. Thank you for your dedication and support."

Through education, advocacy, and community, the OMF and BHC’s Medical Education Resource Center provides a safe space for sharing experiences, finding solace, and accessing vital resources.
