February is a tricky month. Having fewer days might lead a person to believe that not much happens - but that would be so wrong! In February we recognize heart health, U.S. Presidents, African American history, rare diseases, and our valentines. Between that and unpredictable weather patterns, there has been a lot going on - not to mention what we've been up to. Read on to find out! 

DHA Advocacy Day - Stand Up for Digestive Health 
June 23-24 is our annual advocacy event in Washington, DC.  You're invited to join people just like you on Capitol Hill to educate Congress about chronic digestive conditions and why research is so important. By telling your story you can help make a difference for the entire digestive health community.  We hope to see you there!

Grants Fund Gastroparesis Research 
Thanks to the support of our donors and DHA fund raisers, we are excited to announce that we have presented three $40,000 grants for innovative research into gastroparesis.  Advancing the science is essential to learn more about this complicated disorder.  We send a big thank you to our donors and grassroots fund raisers, including many that you've heard about in past issues of Digestive Health Monthly, for making these grants possible.   


10 Relaxed Behaviors You May Want to Try

Relaxation is often easier said than done. But once you figure out how to let go, you may begin to see benefits to your body as well as your mind. 


Rare Disease Day - 2/28/2014
Rare Disease Day, always the final day of February, is a time set aside to raise awareness for these challenging conditions. There are about 7,000 rare diseases in the US, and together they affect almost 1 in 10 people. Do you know which functional GI and motility disorders are classified as "rare?"


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.
