Another major update to several pages of the IBS Impact main website was completed this month. These changes include the most current information on the progress of advocacy for the Functional Gastrointestinal and Motility Disorders Research Enhancement Act (HR 2239) and new links to some of this blog’s most popular posts, as well as a considerably expanded links page with additions in several categories. Based on reader feedback, a completely new category has been added to the links page for disability benefit information.
In this update, we have paid particular attention to including more resources for the many readers around the globe who visit our site and/or blog each month. Six nations, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, are now represented on the site. As IBS is a very common health condition worldwide, we strive to include as many nations as possible where English is a primary or major secondary language. We encourage readers outside the U.S.to alert us to resources, legislation, benefits and other concerns of the IBS community in their countries that may be of interest to other site visitors and blog readers.
Please feel free to check out the site here. Our goal with the website and blog is to provide a varied range of reputable information and resources to people with IBS and their families and friends and to encourage informed choices, proactive self-advocacy and public awareness of IBS, and the unmet medical or social needs many of us face as a result of IBS.
Comments, suggestions and article submissions are welcome and will be thoughtfully considered. Contact links for the IBS Impact founder and webmaster can be found on the home page of the main site, or comments can be left on this blog. Thank you to all of our readers for your interest and participation.
