Our Educational Program
FOMAT is extremely proud to have been publicly recognized for our work including:
Now, we want to spread awareness in other therapeutical areas.
We are looking to partner with businesses and organizations that operate close with large populations of the Ventura County community and offer free health management educational seminars. Our goal is to inform our community about serious health risks that correlate to our findings, educate on ways to prevent these conditions from occurring, offer free diagnostic tests (if applicable), and potential alternative solutions.
What is our first step?
In our current research, FOMAT has uncovered unhealthy trends between a large population of Americans and a fatty liver disease called Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH). NASH is the most severe form of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and is characterized by abnormal accumulation of fat in the liver. NASH is a chronic, but silent disease and most individuals live with it for several years before seeing symptoms. The main cause of NASH is due to dietary habits. There are many factors that play a role in this correlation including gender & age, socioeconomic status, rural vs city living, etc. The combination between unhealthy eating and the previously listed factors has made us all vulnerable to this condition.
How can we help?
FOMAT is fortunate to have access to FibroScan technology, a noninvasive diagnostic ultrasound, that allows us to diagnose NASH. We are looking to offer free liver diagnostics for the community!
