It takes guts!

Join us to hear from individuals and families living with childhood GI conditions.

Our lived-experience panellists will share their journeys to diagnosis (or not) and what living with a childhood GI conditions is like day-to-day.
They’ll be joined by three expert panellists, who will share insights into the patient’s stories as well as discussing what’s next in management and treatment of common GI conditions.
If a child in your life is living with IBS/IBD, Coeliac disease, food allergy or another GI condition, this event is a must.

Bring the kids!

Younger guests will be entertained with science activities and games while Mums and Dads have their questions answered.
A healthy morning tea will be served following the event.
