Medicine X Story
Working as a medical doctor, I realized that far too many people may be confused about their diagnoses, their conditions, and their treatments. There can be a disconnect between the language that health care providers use, and what many individuals understand. This can make you feel anxious at what is often a very difficult time in your life.
We believe there is a better way. We believe all people, regardless of age, gender, culture or condition, should have access to medical information they can understand! Everyone should feel informed and empowered, in order to engage with their health care providers and be involved in making medical decisions.
This is why Medicine X was created.
