IFFGD, the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders, is a nonprofit education and research organization. Our mission is to inform, assist, and support people affected by gastrointestinal (GI) disorders. IFFGD was founded in 1991 by one person struggling with the challenges imposed by a chronic GI disorder. Many others, from all walks of life, have joined with us since. We work with patients and their families, healthcare professionals, investigators, regulators and policy makers in the government, employers, and others to broaden understanding about GI disorders, support or encourage research, and improve digestive health in adults and children.
I'm nominating IFFGD (International Foundation for Functional GI Disorders) for all they do for those living with GI illnesses. From providing knowledge to patients, corresponding with medical providers and researchers, as well as advocating on social media and with Congress, IFFGD does it all. Excellent non-profit actively making a difference. — Trisha
