Leading the Fight for Children's Digestive Health
Millions of children are living with digestive and nutritional disorders. The NASPGHAN Foundation was founded to advance the treatment and management of these conditions.
About the Foundation
Improving the Future for Kids with Digestive Disorders
The mission of the NASPGHAN Foundation is to fund and support the research and education missions of NASPGHAN in order to enhance the health and well-being of children with gastrointestinal, liver, pancreas and nutritional disorders. The NASPGHAN Foundation has a single goal: to improve the treatment and management of gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, pancreatic and nutritional disorders in children. Through our work, we provide information and resources to parents, patients, and medical professionals dealing with these disorders.
The NASPGHAN Foundation was founded by the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN), a professional society of more than 2,600 pediatric gastroenterologists, to promote awareness and research of pediatric digestive and nutritional disorders, including:
- Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance
- Eosinophilic Esophagitis
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Nutrition and Obesity
- Reflux and GERD
- Liver, pancreatic and other disorders
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 GIKids.org 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.
