American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society Twitter Chat, “Hypnosis and GI Disorders”, August 20, 2018, 3:00-4:00 PM ET
The American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society (ANMS) has announced that it will be holding a Twitter chat from 3:00-4:00 PM Eastern time, Monday, August 20, 2018 on the subject of “Hypnosis and GI Disorders.” The chat moderator will be Tiffany Taft, PhD, Assistant Professor in the gastroenterology division of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, Illinois, USA and founding partner in the health psychology practice Oak Park Behavioral Medicine in suburban Oak Park and Evanston, Illinois. Dr, Taft’s research studies have occasionally appeared on this blog, and she wrote a guest post for us on IBS and stigma, a major focus of her research, for IBS Awareness Month 2013.
ANMS’s Twitter handle is @ANMSociety and the chat can be found using the hashtag #ANMSChat
IBS Impact encourages people with irritable bowel syndrome and/or their family members to make time to attend and participate in this open, public chat, which allows one to interact directly with a GI health psychologist who is associated with a leading medical school known for gastrointestinal health psychology research and clinical care. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and/or give feedback about general needs and concerns regarding IBS and gut-directed hypnotherapy.
A reminder to all interested parties: All information shared on Twitter in connection with this chat will remain online, potentially accessible to the public indefinitely and is designed to address issues of general interest within the scheduled hour. It is not an appropriate venue to seek diagnosis or treatment of an individual medical situation from Dr. Taft or other professionals who may be participating in the discussion. However, it is a quality, evidence-based and unique opportunity to further one’s self-education on the IBS and gut-directed hypnotherapy. IBS Impact thanks Dr, Taft and ANMS for making this chat available, with best wishes for a successful chat.
