IBS Awareness Month

IBS Awareness Month 2019

It's April, and that means it's IBS Awareness Month! While raising IBS awareness is vitally important no matter what month it is, this month, we have ways to rally together to raise our voices to say, "It's not just IBS!" Together, we can address the stigma around an issue that affects so many people. As IrritableBowelSyndrome contributor, Jo Coates, eloquently states in her article about breaking the poo taboo:

Once you start talking, you’ll find others do too. So I challenge you to do just that. Start speaking about your bowel movements. Next time someone asks you how your IBS is, tell them honestly. No more embarrassment. It’s about time we broke the poo taboo.

Join us this month in spreading awareness for IBS!
