Introducing the Bateman Horne Center Online Patient Library

The Bateman Horne Center offers one of the largest patient resource libraries for those impacted by ME/CFS and fibromyalgia. One of the main features of the library is access to the recordings from our free monthly education meetings. The sessions happen live on the first Wednesday of each month.  Livestream access with no registration required can be accessed at http://www.youtube.com/c/OfferutahOrg/live. The videos are then made available in our library.
BHC is led by Dr. Lucinda Bateman. Through her website, she offers patients expert advice that is free and easy to understand, including videos, links, and articles, because empowering patients with information is one of the cornerstones of our mission.
Throughout her career, Dr. Bateman’s interest has become more focused on the diagnosis and management of unexplained chronic fatigue, ME/CFS and FM, inspired by the silent suffering of her sister, Shauna Bateman Horne.

“My sister was very sick and unable to get a diagnosis or the treatment she needed. I diagnosed her with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (now called ME/CFS); Shauna also suffered from chronic widespread pain. I didn’t know it then but research published in 2012 by the National Cancer Institute showed that ME/CFS patients are at increased risk of developing certain cancers including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. My sister died in 2001 of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma at the age of 51. A few years before her death, Shauna was my inspiration to start the Fatigue Consultation Clinic where patients like my sister could get the diagnosis and care they need. Since then, more than 1,500 patients with ME/CFS and fibromyalgia have been cared for by me and two physician assistants.”

Since starting the Fatigue Consultation Clinic in 2000, Dr. Bateman has evaluated and followed more than a thousand patients with chronic fatigue conditions. She has lectured extensively on issues relating to chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. She has served on the boards of the Easter Seals of Utah, The International Association of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (IACFS/ME) and The CFIDS Association of America. She co-founded the non-profit, OFFER (The Organization for Fatigue and Fibromyalgia Education and Research) to encourage the sharing of information with patients and medical providers and foster cooperative research efforts aimed at understanding the cause(s) of and developing treatments for ME/CFS and FM. This goal led to the recent merge of OFFER Utah and the Fatigue Consultation Clinic to the Bateman Horne Center.
By renaming to the Bateman Horne Center of Excellence, Dr. Bateman gives thanks to her sister for helping her understand the tremendous unmet need that exists in the patient community.
It is our hope that the patient library can offer some help to those in need of it.
