The Gout & Uric Acid Education Society is "Taking a Stand on Gout" for Gout Awareness Day on May 22.
To heighten awareness about the disease, an infographic poster has been developed for usage in medical professional offices and waiting rooms to help educate patients who might be at risk for the disease and for medical professionals who are on the front-line diagnosing and treating patients.
The infographic poster is one part of a larger initiative from the Gout & Uric Acid Education Society. The Society has launched a Medical Professional Information Kit and Patient Education Kit that leverage other materials – like patient fact sheets and videos, and a 16-page guide for medical professionals.
This infographic poster will also be printed and mailed to 20,000 primary care offices to ensure that they have the latest information on gout and will be available through www.GoutEducation.org by request.
