Our Members 



In 1985 The Chronic Illness Awareness Coalition came into existence with the mission of "A coalition of independent health care organizations dedicated to improving the quality of life of persons affected by chronic illnesses, conditions and disabilities."  Over 30 years later, the C.I.A.C. is still committed to advocating, educate and creating awareness for those with chronic illness.  

That mission has brought together men and women from around the health care industry to share new information about treatment programs, educational forums, fundraisers, grants, ways to access health insurance programs and specialty doctors and get in home care and medical equipment.  These men and women make up our membership and work for or own both non-profit and for-profit companies.  Please look below to see our current members and contact them directly if you have a chronic illness and are in need of their services.  

If you would like to join the C.I.A.C., become a member and stand with us to be a voice and advocate for those with chronic illness, click on the Membership link and join us today!
