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 March 6, 2012 from 8:00-10:00 p.m. Eastern time.
Douglas Drossman, MD, FACG, will be available for an open discussion of “Answers to Your Questions About IBS and Functional GI Disorders.” Dr. Drossman, who co-founded the Center and recently retired as its co-director, is currently President of the Rome Foundation, the Drossman Center for the Education and Practice of Integrated Care, and Drossman Gastroenterology PLLC.
This month’s chat announcement makes a special note that, unlike the usual practice for most UNC chats, there will not be an introductory video this month. Dr. Drossman will take questions for the entire session. Therefore, the Center encourages attenders to log in to the chat promptly. Many past video presentations are archived on the Center website, but the actual chat sessions are conducted live and not archived.
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.
