About the Foundation

Improving the Future for Kids with Digestive Disorders

Mission: The NASPGHAN Foundation funds and supports the professional and patient education and research missions of NASPGHAN.

The NASPGHAN Foundation was founded by the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN), a professional society of more than 2,800 pediatric gastroenterologists, to promote awareness and research of pediatric digestive and nutritional disorders, including:

The NASPGHAN Foundation promotes research, education, and awareness of these and other conditions. We create patient education materials for families and children. We develop educational materials for medical professionals including slide sets, webinars, monographs, web based education modules and a variety of other tools which aid practitioners in the care of children with digestive disorders. We invite you to explore the Professional Resources section of this website as well as and Digestive Topics A-Z for patient education materials.

If you are a health care professional, please consult our research and medical professional resources. If you are a parent or patient explore GIKids, which is our site where you can learn more about pediatric digestive disorders.
