Our Mission

The Chronic Disease Coalition empowers the community of chronic warriors to use their voices and stories to create effective change in the American health care system.

We are patients, family members, health care providers, advocacy groups, medical professionals and friends who care deeply about the needs of millions of Americans with chronic diseases.


With more than 10,000 members across the country and a highly active ambassador program of more than 30 advocates, the Chronic Disease Coalition is one of the leading patient rights advocacy groups in America. Over the past six years, the coalition has been a key partner in passing legislation in almost every state and at the Congressional level, and our highly active online digital advocacy program has grown to become a powerful voice for shaping media narratives and the agenda of the chronic disease community.


The Chronic Disease Coalition is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the rights of chronic disease patients against discriminatory policies and practices. The coalition was founded in 2015 and has since worked to advocate for people living with long-term or lifelong health conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, MS, psoriasis, cancer and other chronic diseases.
