The Short Gut Syndrome Family Support Group is a leading support group for Short Bowel Syndrome. The conversation focuses on providing both emotional and practical support to patients, parents, and families. The goal of the group is to provide support, information, connection and hope. As primarily a support group, we give preference to patients and families and do not allow advertising or research within the group. Because this is a highly sensitive topic, high standards of respect, compassion and privacy are expected.
