Destigmatizing Gastro Health Conversations

Meet the Poo Squad


Meet the Poo Squad - Miss TP, Plungy, Mr. Poo and Sir Colon.

Break the Stigma

The Uncomfortable Truth About Gastrointestinal Health – stigma prevents people from starting the conversation and seeking medical help. Challenging stigma takes understanding, education, and a closer look at our attitudes toward gastrointestinal health.

Together we can demystify and break the stigma once and for all.

It all starts with you.

Our Mission

To increase proactive gastrointestinal health and early detection. We’re here to encourage you to start the conversation — in your family and your community — so you and your loved ones can become your own best health advocates.

Know Your Poop!

Bristol Stool Chart

The Bristol Stool Chart is a way to talk about shapes and types of poop.

The chart is designed to help doctors measure the time it takes for food to pass through your body and leave it as waste.

I found the event incredibly insightful! I had never considered genetic testing as an option for myself, but as someone with limited access to my family history, it sounds like a really great option to get to know my risk of developing certain conditions as I get older. I also think the format was super approachable for a topic that could be inaccessible or scary to approach! Thank you so much for hosting!!


My courageous, generous and amazing friend, Kristin Lynn Grube is spot on with this message! Our gastro health effects everything! Her foundation GH Foundation recently helped my mom and me navigate her issues, and they are bringing education to so many all year long. And it all starts there - with education we can be better to ourselves and help all those we love. Kristin and Dacia - you gals rock!


I’ve worked in a hospital setting all my life & one of the saddest things I’ve ever witnessed was a nurse dying from something she could’ve easily prevented if she hadn’t neglected having a check up for 27 years.  Prevention is the key because by the time you have symptoms, it’s too late.


The GH Foundation helped bring to light the fact that due to my father dying at a young age, I don’t get to learn of some of the predispositions I may have genetically from him. Thanks to the GH foundation, I am now looking into working with a genetic counselor to learn which cancers and other diseases I could be susceptible to. They may just have saved my life!
