Empowering!

This podcast series is so refreshing and helpful. The candid conversations between patients and G.I.Professionals has been enjoyable to listen to! Not only has the episodes answered so many of my questions… but it has also broken down the stigma surrounding many of the concerns and situations that G.I. patients have to navigate daily. Keep up the great work Gastro Girl!
