"There is a misconception that we lack the clinical findings for ME/CFS and FM. We have the tools to make diagnosis more precise; every medical provider must simply learn to use them. Once they do, the illness will appear before their eyes." - Dr. Bateman

You can play a critical role in advancing standardized diagnosis, cutting-edge research, and first-class clinical care as a standard for ME/CFS and FM patients, rather than the exception. Your involvement and support will make a significant difference!

Join us to ensure patients everywhere have an illness journey characterized by swift diagnosis and effective treatments, provided with commitment, compassion and innovation.

BHC Education Events  |  Empower Yourself with Information

While Dr. Bateman and other care providers at BHC are an exception, for most patients the time you have with your doctors is growing shorter. As you become more informed, the more empowered you can be, and the better advocate you are on your own healthcare journey.

The first Wednesday of every month, BHC hosts a free live-broadcast education meeting to help you! LEARN MORE

For Salt Lake City area locals, BHC hosts a Lunch and Learn every third Thursday. LEARN MORE

BHC Research Program  |  Propel Research Forward

Patient participation in research is essential to advancing the science and medicine of ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia. The Bateman Horne Center (BHC) is squarely targeted on bringing ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia to the mainstream through patient centered research. We want to make first-class care the norm for all patients, rather than the exception.

Your participation in research can help us get there sooner rather tHan later. LEARN MORE

BHC Social Network  |  Engage in our Community

Research has shown that social isolation - living alone, having a small social network, infrequent participation in social activities, and feelings of loneliness - can have a negative impact on your health. For far too many with ME/CFS and FM, this is their reality. Conversely, social support from others has robust beneficial effects on the cardiovascular, endocrine, and immune systems.

Until we are successful in finding robust treatments and a cure that will give you your life back, engaging in a rich social network online can serve to fill the gap, bring back some social connection, and ease feelings of 'being in it alone.'

Support Our Important Work!  |  DONATE

The important work of bringing first-class care to patients, through cutting-edge research and innovative education can only be done with the support of many.  Automated, recurring gifts are an excellent way to maximize your support, but there are many ways to give:

  • Incorporate giving to BHC in your financial and estate planning
  • Take advantage of the tax savings that come from giving BHC appreciated stocks or shares of mutual funds. Contact us at [email protected] to learn more.
  • Recognize someone in life or pay tribute to their memory
  • #SockItToMECFSandFM – along with Dr. Bateman, vow to wear wild and wacky socks until biomarkers are found and challenge your friends! Build awareness and fund progress while having some fun!

However you choose to engage with and support BHC,
we thank you and we welcome you to the family!

"Before coming to the Bateman Horne center, I maybe left my house once a week if not once every other week. I did not have a good quality of life, I was sleeping 20+ hours per day. Since working with Dr. Bateman I am now working part time and going to school (working on my MS) full time! It is definitely not easy and I still have my bad days, but with the help of the Bateman Horne Center I feel like I am me again!"  - Amy Richins

"I love the symbolism of the Bateman Horne Center name. It reminds me of the importance of caregivers and patients working together to make progress. The word "Center" means a lot to me because CARE is at the center -- the very heart -- of everything they do. (CARE = Clinic, Advocacy, Research, and Education.) I truly love working with the Bateman Horne Center to serve my loved ones who suffer from ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia."  - Jay Turner
