HealthBeacon partners with MAGIC Foundation to bring their innovative digital therapeutic technology to US patient group for human growth disorders.

The MAGIC Foundation is a charitable non-profit organization created to provide support services for the families of children afflicted with a wide variety of chronic and/or critical disorders, syndromes and diseases that affect a child’s growth. HealthBeacon identified the MAGIC Foundation as their chosen partner to promote the MAGIC Foundation mission “to reduce the emotional and physical trauma caused by growth disorders, resulting in healthier, happier children and consequently, adults.”

HealthBeacon will be introduced to patients and carers at the MAGIC Foundation’s 24th Annual Conference in Illinois on July 12th, 2018. HealthBeacon’s injectable adherence platform has been cleared by the FDA, and this cornerstone event is the first step to make the HealthBeacon smart sharps system available to the millions of Americans on long term, chronic injectable care. This major launch event will kick off HealthBeacon’s US Tour to introduce their digital therapeutic platform to influencers and advocates nationwide.

MAGIC Foundation is the global leader in endocrine health, advocacy, education, and support. HealthBeacon believes that engaging with the world leading advocacy groups will provide a strong network and patient engagement program to improve medication adherence for patients with human growth disorders.
