Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a chronic gastro-intestinal disorder that occurs most commonly in women (it has also been diagnosed in children). People who suffer from IBS experience multiple episodes of stomach pain associated with bowel movements and changes in toileting habits. People with IBS also have increased rates of depression (7-25%) and anxiety symptoms (12-63%).
If you or someone you know suffer from IBS or if you work with the IBS patient population, there are two **free** webinars on "Myths and Misconceptions" this month. The expert led panel will address topics such as causes/how it works, diagnosing the condition, and treatment options. The patient session is on April 19 and session for healthcare providers is on April 26. If you aren't able to attend, you can still register as many of these webinars will let you know when the recording is available online for viewing.
