Updates to some pages of the IBS Impact main website have been completed during July and August. These changes include the most current information on the progress of advocacy for the Functional Gastrointestinal and Motility Disorders Research Enhancement Act (HR 2239). There have also been additions to and corrections for various resources on the links page. On the IBS studies page, a few newer studies to come to our attention recently have been added, and other studies that are no longer recruiting have been removed. We welcome researchers affiliated with academic, medical or pharmaceutical entities, or reputable organizations representing IBS or related or commonly overlapping conditions, to alert us to additional studies they wish to be considered for posting, or any updates that need to be made to existing listings, which are compiled from a variety of sources.
Please feel free to check out the site here. Our goal with the website, blog and social media is to provide a varied range of current, 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. IBS Impact, as an entity, is not directly affiliated with any other organization, site or research sponsor and receives no funding for the information we post on the main website, this blog or our Twitter and Facebook pages. We do welcome constructive collaboration and value the many individuals, websites and organizations who continue to support, encourage and amplify our efforts in various ways to benefit the cause of IBS awareness and advocacy.
Comments, suggestions, corrections of outdated links, and article submissions are welcome and will be thoughtfully considered.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.
