International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD) Seeks Volunteers for New Patient Panel, June 2018

The International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD) is an established, reputable U.S. based 501c3 not-for-profit organization/charity focused on irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and related functional gastrointestinal disorders, also known as disorders of gut-brain interaction. IFFGD was founded in 1991 by an FGID-affected family and continues to have people with FGIDs or family members/supporters among its staff. IFFGD is a science-based organization with leading FGID clinicians and researchers from 11 countries on its advisory board.

Now IFFGD is reaching out to people affected by FGIDs, including IBS, as well as concerned family members and friends, to join a new Patient Panel. This involves occasional opportunities to give IFFGD feedback on the needs and experiences of our community, IFFGD’s programs and services, and to participate in IFFGD’s awareness and advocacy efforts. IFFGD is not asking for a specific time commitment or obligating panel members to respond to every opportunity, simply identifying those who are interested in being contacted and willing to participate in some of the potential requests. If you wish to volunteer, you may indicate this to IFFGD staff at the following link.

IBS Impact encourages affected people and family members who wish to make a real difference in services to the IBS/functional gastrointestinal and motility disorders community to consider this important opportunity.
