We are excited to announce the Nancy and Bill Norton Patient Education Series (NES), launching in 2020. The NES program, named for our founders Nancy and Bill Norton, is a tribute to the tremendous work they have done for the GI community. This multi-media educational program is designed to equip patients with chronic gastrointestinal (GI) illness with education and resources to help them navigate life. Each meeting will be at least a half-day and will include a multitude of activities, such as lectures, Q&A panels, patient stories, lifestyle presentations, hands-on workshops and networking opportunities. Each program will have an in-person program event in locations across the US as well as streamed live online content and recorded videos. Make sure to follow us on our social media or check back here for updates!
