IMD Health Announce Partnership with Nankind to Improve Quality of Patient Education

IMD Health Global is pleased to announce an important new partnership with Nankind, a charitable organization that transforms the cancer experience for families by providing free support programs. This partnership will be invaluable to helping IMD Health in their commitment to providing easily accessible digital health support resources to healthcare providers, patients and their families on the IMD platform.

“When a parent is diagnosed with cancer everything changes within the home. Our support programs provide the sense of normalcy children and the entire family need during this difficult time,” said Audrey Guth, Founder of Nankind and two-time cancer survivor. “Nankind provides parents with cancer free in-home and virtual support that focuses on helping their children understand this life change and build lifelong emotional resilience.”

IMD’s health education platform is one of the largest in North America, offering healthcare providers and patients instant access to graphics, videos and other educational resources spanning 6,000+ health topics. These resources facilitate meaningful dialogue between healthcare professionals and patients inside the examination room, at hospital bedsides and pharmacies, and during virtual consultations.

Nankind’s resources for families and practitioners are now freely available on IMD Health. This means that IMD’s established healthcare provider network can send patients home with resource packages containing information on how Nankind can support parents with cancer, how to talk to their children about cancer, as well as how to request free support for families in the midst of a cancer journey.
