September is a busy time of year for many. Children are heading back to school, the weather shifts and temperatures cool, and people gradually look towards the upcoming Holiday season.
For us at IFFGD, September saw a flurry of activity. We announced our 2018 Research Recognition Awards and call for applications; we sponsored our second IFFGD Tweet Chat to gather input from the community about what it means to be an advocate for digestive health; and we joined patients, family members and friends, healthcare professionals, and others across the US in educating our House Congressional Representatives about the impact of functional gastrointestinal and motility disorders (FGIMDs) on all those affected during IFFGD's National Advocacy Day.
Thank you for joining us as we review our activities over the past month and look ahead.
