Treatment guidelines now determine your medical treatment options. Patients need guidelines that are developed without commercial interests or industry bias. Sign this petition to urge Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal to hold medical societies accountable for their guidelines by continuing his historic fight against the vested interests of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA). All patients need access to effective medical care. If you are a Connecticut resident, click here to signthe petition or to download a paper petition for distribution. Let your voice be heard!
