Medically reviewed online resources educate patients on treatment options and more
SAN FRANCISCO — September 1, 2022 — MyHealthTeam, creator of the largest and fastest-growing social networks for people facing chronic health conditions, today launched myEoEcenter, a knowledge center for people facing eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). myEoEcenter features medically reviewed resources about the condition, including information about symptom management and guidance for talking with doctors – primarily gastroenterologists and allergists – about treatment options.
EoE is a chronic immune system disease that can cause food to get stuck in the throat, often leads to painful and difficult swallowing, and can result in chest pain. EoE is considered a major cause of gastrointestinal illness and impacts approximately 150,000 people in the United States.
“People living with EoE have so many questions about what actions they can take and treatment options they can pursue to alleviate their daily discomfort and the wide-ranging impacts of this condition,” said Eric Peacock, cofounder and CEO of MyHealthTeam. “The medically reviewed content in myEOEcenter empowers people to work with their doctors to map the right course of action for them.”
Patient education content within myEoEcenter – all free to access – includes:
