By inviting health care professionals to visit the Us TOO site, we hope to
Foster communication between patients, their families, and their doctors with regard to the disease and its treatment options.
Provide a centralized educational and support resource for patients, their families, and their doctors.
Inform health care professionals about the support resources, such as the Us TOO chapter network and online bulletin boards, available to their patients.
