Welcome to the monthly eNewsletter of the
International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD)

Digestive Health Monthly - May 2016


This year, IFFGD is pleased to celebrate 25 years of supporting the functional gastrointestinal (GI) and motility disorders patient community. Since the organization was formed in 1991 we have worked to raise awareness, improve education, advance research, and broaden understanding of these disorders on behalf of patients and their families, investigators, and clinicians in the field. We are grateful to the many individuals who have supported our efforts over the last 25 years and look forward to working with you to continue to improve outcomes for all those affected by these conditions in the future.

Thank you.    
The New Face of IFFGD

In celebration of our 25th anniversary, we are pleased to launch our newly redesigned family of websites. With the redesign, we aim to improve the user experience by simplifying navigation, providing a responsive layout for all platforms, and generally making it easier for people to find the information they want.

Support IFFGD

Over the last 25 years, we've provided valuable services to the functional GI and motility disorders patient community such as:
  • research grants,
  • advocacy efforts,
  • patient education materials,
  • and professional awareness and education opportunities
But, this has only been possible through the support of donations. Make a tax-deductible gift to IFFGD today and help ensure that we can continue to provide these services for years to come.
