Welcome to another episode of Talking Gut
Todays episode is slightly different, It specifically created for Coeliac Australia as part of their 2020 Gluten Free Expo which unfortunately did not going head as an in person. Hopefully this year it will back to somewhat normal
The team at Coeliac Australia do a fantastic job in supporting their members and individuals diagnosed with Coeliac disease and I was excited help out by providing them with a useful episode on stigma in Coeliac disease.
And who else best to talk about Stigma and coeliac disease than Associate Prof Tiffany Taft.
Those that has listened to Episode 6 on the psychosocial impact of IBD, will know Dr. Tiffany Taft is a clinical psychologist and Associate Professor in the division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago Illinois. She also owns a group private practice of psychologists & social workers who work with patients with chronic medical illness.
Dr Taft has worked in the field now known as Psychogastroenterology for the past 15 years during which she published several studies on stigma toward irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, gastroparesis, and eosinophilic GI disorders.
