Moderators - I have permission from Peter to post this to the forum.
I'm a clinical psychologist at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and we're conducting a research study looking at the social aspects of having IBS. I'm part of a group of psychologists, dietitians and gastroenterologists committed to improving the lives of people affected by IBS. We have used Healingwell many times to recruit people for our research so we make sure we're getting input from as wide of a variety of people as possible. We are very grateful to the help we get from the Healingwell community in getting our research accomplished. Here is the study information. Thank you for your help!
The Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is seeking adults age 18 years and older with a diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) to participate in a study evaluating patients’ social and interpersonal experiences.
