Fundraisers to support gastroparesis research and increase awareness 

Last year Melissa created gear to raise awareness for gastroparesis and donated the proceeds to the Digestive Health Alliance. This year, Melissa is back with more sweatshirts, tees, and bags, as well as other opportunities to support her work to help fund research to find better treatments for those fighting with gastroparesis. Check out her fundraising page and her dedicated efforts at the link below. 

Motility disorders of the esophagus 
As food moves through the body, it is transported by all of the muscles of the digestive tract. This also means that there are a number of places where abnormal motility can cause a problem. This month we look at conditions that affect the top of the digestive tract, motility disorders of the esophagus such as GERD, dysphagia, and achalasia.


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.
