GIKids : About Us
GIKids is the patient outreach and education effort of NASPGHAN - the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition – an organization of more than 1400 pediatric gastroenterologists, predominantly in 46 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Mexico and 8 provinces in Canada.
With GIKids, NASPGHAN and their foundation are working to reach out directly to families, kids and teens who live with digestive conditions to provide them with the information they need to
- understand and improve their digestive health
- work with their health care providers
- live a more independent life
- understand what works in plain language instead of medical jargon
We are working to promote awareness and research of pediatric digestive and nutritional disorders including:
- Celiac disease
- Eosinophilic esophagitis
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Nutrition and obesity
- Reflux and GERD
If you would like to help support us in our mission, you can donate to help us in the fight against digestive and nutritional disorders in children. Donating supports research and provides resources to combat and treat these conditions.
