Many updates to most pages of the IBS Impact main website have been underway recently. Among the changes are updated information and links on the progress of advocacy for the Functional Gastrointestinal and Motility Disorders Research Enhancement Act, also known as H.R. 842. There have also been new resources added on the links page, advocacy page, and IBS and children page. The IBS studies page has been considerably revised. Defunct links for some older material previously on the site are being removed, and some items are being rearranged. The various updates involve resources in four countries that are among the top visitors to IBS Impact.
Please feel free to check out the site here. Our goals with the website, blog and social media are to provide a varied range of current, scientifically accurate, 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.
April is IBS Awareness Month and some intriguing things are also being planned for this blog in the coming weeks, so please check back.
