Expert Update on Treatments for Functional GI Disorders:
A Symposium for Patients

This educational symposium was held in Chapel Hill, NC, in June 2012. It brought together many prominent experts in the field of functional GI disorders, with the aim of providing patients with these health problems in the U.S. and beyond with the latest information on treatments for their conditions. As a part of that educational mission, we have now made all the presentations available on this public web page.

The symposium was divided into 4 topic sessions, each consisting of several presentations (you can click on each session title to skip down to the videos for that session):
