Then, send your letters or pictures to Peter Herzog by email to herzog@hmcw.org or by mail to 507 Capitol Court NE, Suite 200, Washington DC 20002 on or before Friday, September 21st. On Wednesday, September 26th, IFFGD will hand deliver your letters and pictures to your House Members of Congress. By all taking action, together we can maximize the impact of our message and raise critical awareness for the millions of Americans living daily with the challenges of a chronic GI disorder.
