Review for Human Health Project, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The inspiration for founding Human Health Project (HHP) came from an illness that left me unable to work for two years but which could have been taken care of in a few months with the right information. Despite my medical (MD) and patient advocate background, I spent 4 years going from doctor to doctor, conventional and complementary without a diagnosis. I saw first hand what's it's like to try to survive in the twilight zone while falling through the cracks of the healthcare system. When I recovered I started to work on addressing what happened to me, out of which grew HHP.

Human Health Project (HHP) provides a free online service that enables you to share information about your health symptoms and conditions with other individuals. Our goal is to improve access, self-management, equity, and affordability of health care throughout the world.
