I've been volunteering at IHHS ever since I was in high school and Lisa and the staff always treated me with care and respect. They go to great lengths to get the word out about hyperhidrosis and raise awareness about this disorder. I've known this organization almost since the beginning and seen them grow and do great things. Thanks to the work that is done, HH treatment and insurance coverage for it has come a long way. They're always in the know about upcoming treatments and work hard to facilitate progress in the field by interacting with scientists and companies that develop treatments for hyperhidrosis. There really is no other organization like this in the world.
I feel blessed to have the chance to work with such a caring group of individuals, who all work so hard to bring to light awareness of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) as a true medical condition. Among its many programs aimed at education and advocacy, the Society holds seminars to educate physicians about this condition so that they, in turn, can help patients who are affected by this debilitating condition. Patients can even volunteer to receive free treatment at these seminars and also get the opportunity to meet others who also suffer with this condition. We frequently hear from patients that the treatment that these seminars provide is life-changing. This validation makes the work and effort put into organizing/holding these seminars totally worth it! What a rewarding way to spend time!
I have had the opportunity to do work for this nonprofit, and at all of the treatment seminars. This is a life changing organization! Both in it's free treatments and it's one-of-a-kind knowledge based, patient support website. Lisa Pieretti, the executive Director is an angel to thousands.
The International Hyperhidrosis Society has literally changed the lives of thousands who suffered in silence. I have personally seen how this organization works tirelessly to continue to raise awareness of excessive sweating, and hyperhidrosis. Working with a condition that has such a negative stigma is challenging but the IHHS breaks down the barriers and gets information and hope to the global population of sufferers. They are the only ones who do this. And they deserve our support.
