How GI & CSIR Help
The GI (Gastrointestinal) Society was formed in 2008 on the foundation of its partner organization, the Canadian Society of Intestinal Research (CSIR), founded in 1976. The staff of the GI Society run CSIR, but both organizations have a separate board of directors. Funds from both organizations support our core programs which focus on providing Canadians with trusted medically sound information to promote digestive and liver health.
The GI Society and its partner charity the Canadian Society of Intestinal Research collaborate to provide a number of core programs and services that focus on providing Canadians with trusted medically sound information on digestive health. This section briefly outlines how we address great need with limited resources.
These free public forums cover various digestive topics for patients, caregivers, health care professionals, and other interested individuals across the country. We choose well-recognized experts to give each lecture, and a lively question and answer period always follows. You can find a list of upcoming lectures and past lectures on our website.
