Hi Shawn,As you may know we have been working for some time on Capitol Hill to raise awareness and increase research funding. Last Thursday (April 29) a Resolution we drafted was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives in support of IBS and FGIDs research and awareness. Now we need everyone interested to write to their House Member and ask them to support H. Res. 1309. Details are on our web page at http://www.iffgd.org/site/advocacy/legislative-alerts/action#natlres. We'd appreciate it if you could help us spread the word.I'm at DDW all week. Hope you are doing well.Thanks,Bill
Thanks, Shawn. Glad to help. I know from experience that it can get disheartening being almost the only one bumping up threads like this and wondering if more than a few of us are following up.
I'm doing the best I can, as we all are, but it's not easy. I'll be more okay if we can get this resolution passed. :)
Bumping this up from the bottom of page 2 because I haven't seen much action on this lately and as far as I know, it's still at 8 Representatives. (initial sponsor and 7 co-sponsors) A simple majority is 219! It's still important to write and to call and let Congress know we want and need this. It will not happen by itself.
