In a few days IBS Awareness Month will be upon us. IFFGD first designated April as IBS Awareness Month in 1997 to bring attention to the disorder and the impact it has on quality of life. We have been working for many years to raise awareness for the needs of those with IBS and other functional GI and motility disorders - and we are determined to continue. Many thanks to all of you who are joining us on this journey! 
Earlier this month we also attended the Digestive Disease National Coalition (DDNC) Public Policy Forum in Washington, DC, reaffirming our commitment to speaking up for the digestive health community. While we were there Nancy Norton, our president and founder, was honored with the DDNC Lifetime Service Achievement Award for her dedication to helping people affected by chronic digestive diseases. Congratulations Nancy!
