DTP Awareness Month

The month of August has been designated as Digestive Tract Paralysis Awareness Month, with a number of activities planned for G-PACT’s support group communities.

The largest and most significant events are held during Awareness Week, which encompasses the date of G-PACT’s founding, August 23rd.

In addition, G-PACT is working to have all 50 states designate August as Digestive Tract Paralysis Month. All events scheduled for Awareness Month and Awareness Week will be posted on the Facebook Fan Page. 


G-PACT has created a secure program which allows other patients to provide support to members in need. Using a mail drop, a G-PACT volunteer will collect cards and letters to forward to those individuals.  Visit Send-A-Smile’s Facebook page.
