G-PACT was started by a group of people nationwide who are suffering from Gastroparesis. It is not a very well known condition so therefore patients are often misdiagnosed for years and do not respond well to treatment for other disorders.G-PACT is dedicated to increasing awareness of Gastroparesis among the medical profession, patients, and general population. We provide multiple educational resources and coping mechanisms to the public at no cost.
We have over 12.500 Facebook fans from all 50 states and 50 different countries. We have some of the leading GP physicians on our medical advisory board. We are also conducting the first IRB approved international research study into Gastroparesis. We founded DTP awareness month in August 2010 which has become an international event. We are very highly regarded among the leading GP doctors in the country and are the go-to organization for these conditions. We advocate on Capitol Hill every year, but also expand and pursue different types of treatment options outside of the FDA.
