My interest in caring for people with painful gout grew while working seperately with Gout Patient Advocate Brooke Stacey and my gout suffering patient Gary Ho.  Initially we created a patient support group for the local gout community in Austin, Texas.  This support group grew into The Gout Support Group of America on Facebook with thousands of members all over the world.  This propelled an additional support group named The Alliance for Gout Awareness, which is under the umbrella of the patient centered organization The Alliance for Patient Access.

Our mission is to serve as a platform from which stake holders in the gout community can collaborate to reduce stigma and empower patients by improving public understanding of gout.
