Frequent trips to the emergency department for issues involving her Crohn’s disease and fibromyalgia motivated Sarah to join Care Connections. Being part of this program has helped her better manage her medications, sort through insurance issues, and become more educated about her health and wellness. “This is a good fit and I made the right decision about joining,” said Sarah. “Everyone is so nice and helpful.”
These are the first of many success stories of Care Connections. These patients are in the driver’s seat of their wellness and we are so pleased to have been their health partners.
