DDNC Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Social Justice

The Digestive Disease National Coalition (DDNC) is dedicated to improving the lives of all patients with digestive diseases regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or country of origin. In light of recent events, we feel compelled to speak out against any treatment that results in unacceptable disparities that marginalize the vulnerable in our country and around the world.   Therefore, the DDNC and all its member organizations vow to speak out against injustice and be a force for positive change demonstrating our deep commitment to the value of ​every human life and the principles of equity, diversity, inclusion and respect. 


DDNC advocates for patients and their health care providers on a wide range of legislation and regulatory action considered by Congress and the administration.

The DDNC has compiled informational resources and supports a number of policy measures during this uncertain time. Click here for more info.
