The University of North Carolina Center for Functional Gastrointestinal and Motility Disorders has announced the next online chat in its “Evening with the Experts” series. It will take place Tuesday, December 6, 2011 from 8:00-10:00 p.m. Eastern time. Olafur Palsson, PsyD. of the Center will be presenting on””IBS Beyond the Bowel: Why Do Some IBS Patients Have So Many Non-Gastrointestinal Symptoms and What Is the Impact of Those Extra Symptoms?”
IBS Impact thanks Dr. Palsson and his colleagues at the Center for being responsive to the suggestion of this topic by a few IBS Impact members. People with IBS, and/or their concerned family members and friends are encouraged to make time to attend and participate in this and other UNC chats, which are an excellent, unique opportunity to interact directly with leading researchers, ask questions and give them feedback about our needs and concerns.
To participate in this or any UNC chat, go to the Center home page about 10 minutes before the starting time, click on the chat icon and follow the instructions given there. The current chat announcement on the Center site also includes a list of upcoming topics scheduled for the next several months.
Those who are unfamiliar with UNC’s online chat series may also find this previous post by IBS Impact on July 29 to be of interest.
