What is Patient Relief & why does it matter?
Patient relief is aid to those who have been harmed by medications. Some experts have estimated 2 to 4 million medication-related injuries can occur in a single calendar year. So, our idea is to raise $100K & create a program to:
provide temporary financial aid to those individuals who have experienced financial hardship due to their unexpected medication-related health outcomes
create a counseling network to provide emotional support
collect more data on how people suffer from medication harm to expand the understanding on burden to individuals & groups
and, lower overall medication harm suffering through scalable relief services
