Patients with autism have a much higher chance of developing a special kind of gastrointestinal disorder called a Disorder of Gut-Brain Interaction. Let’s avoid years of unnecessary pain and medical visits by learning about what these disorders are, how they work and how they can be treated.
Hope to see you there!
