Our Mission

Since 2006, our mission is to provide individuals living with gastrointestinal diseases with evidence-based, behavioral self- management strategies that will improve their gastrointestinal symptoms, emotional well-being, and quality of life.

Our Center

The psychological and social aspects of GI diseases are often neglected in a busy healthcare setting. However, research shows that attending to a patient’s psychosocial needs in the context of a medical condition is critical for optimal disease care. We are a comprehensive team of health psychologists, physicians, and dieticians, together, seeking to understand health behaviors that directly interfere with the effectiveness of medical care.
