We envision a world where no patient faces barriers to care, treatment, and support. At GHLF, we’re committed to improving the lives of people living with chronic conditions and their loved ones.
WHAT WE DO
Elevating Patient Voices
We believe patients have the power to transform health care. That’s why we support and train patient leaders to share their stories. GHLF patient leaders can be found advocating across all 50 U.S. state capitals and on Capitol Hill, and in countries around the world.
Helping Patients Live Better with Knowledge & Support
With so much health misinformation on the internet, we’re committed to providing patients and their loved ones with evidence-based information and useful advice to help them manage their conditions and self-advocate for better care.
Investigating Research Topics that Matter to Patients
With our ArthritisPower research registry, our patient-centered research is committed to including the patient voice in medical studies. We address patients’ questions and concerns by conducting research that matters to patients and has the power to help improve their day-to-day lives.
