Complete the short form here to sign-up for IFFGD's Advocacy Connection e Newsletter. 

With this new platform, IFFGD is looking to educate and update community members on advocacy topics relevant to gastrointestinal (GI) conditions. It is vital for patients, families/friends, and professionals affected by GI illness to understand that voicing their concerns can make a difference. Lawmakers and government agencies rely on the stories and experiences of everyday Americans to guide them in important decision-making processes. This eNewsletter will inform and assist you as you advocate for yourself and/or loved ones.
