HR 2311 Bill …. For Gastroparesis Awareness, Research and Education

Our bill, now known as HR 2311 (former HR 842), has been reintroduced by Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr. of Wisconsin.

It is titled “Functional Gastrointestinal and Motility Disorders Research Enhancement Act of 2015,” and has been introduced/referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce.

This bill would expand research and promote awareness of functional/motility GI disorders such as gastroparesis. It is designed to help promote education of physicians and the general public, increase efforts to find new and effective treatments, expand clinical research, and create new medical centers designed to study these disorders and share information with others.

I urge you to read the text of the bill and contact your representatives.  Ask them to sign on as cosponsors and support this bill!  I cannot express the importance of this bill.
