Group Name: GI Society/Canadian Society of Intestinal Research – IBS Support
Description: The GI Society is committed to improving the lives of people with GI and liver conditions, supporting research, advocating for appropriate patient access to healthcare, and promoting gastrointestinal and liver health. In 2008, the Canadian Society of Intestinal Research created the Gastrointestinal Society (GI Society) to provide Canadians with a broader range of resources in this sorely neglected health area.
Our support groups are regular gatherings for individuals who have an intestinal disease or disorder. The purpose of these meetings is to provide and exchange information related to the group focus, to offer one another support, and to share experiences and proven coping strategies. Participants are encouraged to speak freely about problems, concerns, and frustrations, and to contribute their helpful hints, information, encouragement, and support. We never expect anyone to volunteer any information he or she wishes to keep private. Meetings are open to the public and there is no charge to attend. Occasionally, we invite various medical experts and other qualified professionals to give speeches, mini-seminars, or presentations, with time allowed for questions. We dedicate a significant portion of each meeting to informal, open sharing and discussion.
