The International Foundation for Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD) has announced the dates for its annual Advocacy Day event which, this year, will be Virtual Advocacy Day on June 27, 2020. This the day each year when a delegation of IFFGD staff, GI researchers, GI disorder-affected people and families gather to advocate with members of the U.S. Congress for the passage of the Functional Gastrointestinal and Motility Disorders Research Enhancement Act (HR 3396) and other federal legislation of concern to those with a great many chronic GI disorders that IFFGD serves, including IBS.

Participation is free of charge, but if you wish to join in the official IFFGD delegation, registration is required and currently open. There is required advocacy training the previous day, July 26, to insure that all participants know what to do and communicate a consistent message in support of the GI community.
