A message from all of us…
Your tax-deductible donations will help us continue to develop and update content for the WipeDiseases.org site. Medical protocols, information and medications are forever changing. What might be considered up-to-date and standard-of-care today could be outdated and obsolete by tomorrow.
Your generous donations will help ensure the rapidly changing treatments and technologies will continue to be incorporated into our educational initiatives.
To date, our website and updates have been made possible by the grants obtained by Dr. Adams, as well as by her own personal commitment to excellence in education, which is evident not only by the number of hours she has donated, but also by the significant investment of her own funds in order to honor her promise of keeping our site current with changes and advances in the evaluation and management of various diseases such as COPD and asthma.
A donation to the WipeDiseases Foundation is an investment in helping healthcare professionals treat diseases with current guidelines/practices by eliminating days and weeks of their own research or time involved by travels away from their patients and practices.
