    • Our clinical care is supported by basic and clinical research, with 14 studies currently funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
    • We care for more than 8,000 children in a variety of multidisciplinary care GI programs.
    • We are now a part of the Improve Care Now Network, a national benchmarketing program that enables our gastroenterologists to collaborate with centers throughout the U.S. and in London to improve the care of children and adolescents with irritable bowel disorders.
