After a brief hiatus of a few weeks, our main website, IBS Impact.com is back up and live. The site has been moved to a new web host, webmaster and design template. Information and links on all pages have been completely updated to remove or replace outdated material and links, streamline the look, resolve technical issues, and improve overall site security and stability. It is hoped that these changes will also allow easier and faster updates in the future for IBS Impact volunteers.
Most links embedded in posts on this blog or search engine results relating to IBS Impact.com should still work, although some from several years ago may result in error messages. You should still reach the site itself. If this occurs, please use the navigation links at the top of the site to reach the desired subpage. No information that is still currently useful has been removed from the site.
Our site includes evidence-based information on IBS, advocacy, research, clinical trials, resources and articles by people with IBS, families and professionals, separate pages for families and friends and parents of children and teens with IBS, and various links in six countries. Regardless of one’s interest in IBS, whether personal or professional, most users should find useful and interesting material. Readers interested in the most recent news, events, clinical trial and advocacy opportunities, and articles between main site updates, may follow this blog or our Facebook or Twitter feeds (links found on the lower right sidebar of this blog).
Please feel free to check out the new 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.
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, organizations, and clinical and research entities who continue to support, encourage and amplify our efforts in various ways to benefit the cause of IBS awareness and advocacy worldwide.
Special thanks to several volunteer friends of IBS Impact who assisted in various aspects of relaunching the site. Their work is essential to IBS Impact and the cause.
Comments, suggestions, corrections of outdated links, article submissions, and clinical trials or surveys by researchers affiliated with academic, medical, or pharmaceutical entities or reputable organizations representing IBS or commonly overlapping conditions in any country are all welcome and will be thoughtfully considered. A contact form 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 and social media followers for your interest and participation.
