Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) affects a large majority of the U.S. population — roughly seven million people have some symptoms of GERD. In the field of GI, you likely experience patients with related problems on a daily basis. Through the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD), we encourage you to take part in acknowledging GERD Awareness Week 2016.
November 20-26 is the 17th Annual GERD Awareness Week; remember to discuss this disease with your patients, help them consult with their physicians and learn more about GERD through IFFGD.
