Passion and Determination

The Digestive Health Foundation focuses on improving the quality of life for anyone facing a digestive disorder by supporting cutting-edge medical research, physician training, and education at the Northwestern Medicine Digestive Health Center. As DHF enters its sixth year, we have raised more than $14 million in support of 54 independent research studies by the Northwestern Medicine Digestive Health Center’s world-class physician scientists. Together, we are changing the landscape of digestive health.
