GERD Awareness Week: November 24-30, 2013

Each year during the week of Thanksgiving, we recognize GERD Awareness Week. Educating others about the existence of the condition is key to gaining support for increased treatment options and getting people the help they need. Find answers to commonly asked questions about this functional GI disorder and learn ways that you can raise awareness for GERD in your community. 


IFFGD, a nonprofit organization, and its grassroots arm, the Digestive Health Alliance (DHA), rely on donor support to fund research and to provide reliable information and support to those affected by functional gastrointestinal and motility disorders.
