New GERD Patient Education Video Available for Sharing

Nov. 30, 2016

AGA has created a new video discussing symptoms and causes of GERD, as well as when to see a GI.

During the holiday season, with changes in eating habits, symptoms of reflux tend to be on the rise. The AGA patient education library continues to grow with the newest addition of the GERD patient education video. The short, animated video is meant to be public-facing to help inform your patients about symptoms, causes and home remedies for reflux. 

We encourage you to use your various channels to share the video. There are two versions of the video available, one full length (2:05) and one abbreviated version (1:09) for easier viewing. Here are some tips you can follow to help get the word out about holiday heartburn and how to take care of it.
