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, February 7, 2012 from 8:00-10:00 p.m. Eastern time. Spencer Dorn, MD, MPH of the Center will be presenting on “Dietary Approaches and Probiotics” in regard to functional gastrointestinal disorders like IBS.
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.
Within the IBS community, there is often a great deal of interest from affected people in dietary issues, as well as much information of varying quality and scientific validity. This particular chat is a chance to get evidence-based and up to date information on the topic from experts in IBS and other functional GI disorders.
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 few 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.
EDITED TO ADD: The topic and presenter for this date have been changed by UNC. See the February 3 post.
