We applaud the National Institutes of Health focus on bowel health awareness, especially as increasing numbers of Americans seek to live well for an extra three decades - beyond midlife. Our ABL education and advocacy efforts address the public health gap and unmet mature health need around accidental bowel leakage which is a bowel health concern.
Our Infographic and ABL Conversation Starter are here to help consumers and healthcare professionals get the facts…and start the conversation around ABL. It’s important to know that most people with ABL do not talk to their healthcare provider, and we hope these tools will help start the dialogue so symptoms can be managed.
