Can I donate for medication adherence research or to somebody who can't afford it?
Absolutely. Medication non-adherence is an issue that currently kills 125,000 people in the U.S. each year but unfortunately, little is being done to address the issue due to the way incentives are structured with our current healthcare system.
We are engaged with academic several researchers at top institutions (Duke, Stanford, Harvard, U of Washington, etc.) who are interested in testing our product. However, clinical research can be expensive and as a small company we don't have the same research budget as the pharmaceutical or medical device companies that charge thousands (or hundreds of thousands) of dollars for their products.
Please send an email to [email protected] if you're interested in donating to our clinical research efforts, or in donating PillsyCaps to people who can't afford to pay for it themselves. We typically provide our products at cost for these types of uses.
We've also got some suggestions for great organizations you can donate to directly that are focused on helping people who take important medications:
- Chad's Legacy - Is helping to improve awareness, treatment and research around mental health, especially for children and young adults.
- Alex's Lemonade Stand - Helps generate funding to help children with cancer.
- Partners in Health - Helps people with health issues in the developing world, such as TB, Malaria and HIV.
