Bowel Control Awareness Campaign Press Release
The NIDDK Bowel Control Awareness Campaign (BCAC) provides current, science-based information about the symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of bowel control problems, also known as fecal incontinence. The Awareness Campaign is an initiative of the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse, a service of the NIDDK.

“The lack of communication between health care professionals and patients appears to be one of the main challenges with bowel control problems. Being able to talk about the problem is the first step in both prevention and treatment. People experiencing bowel control problems need to know they are not alone and that the condition can be managed. The Bowel Control Awareness Campaign will inform health care professionals and the public that bowel incontinence is a common condition and that effective treatments are available.”
– Stephen P. James, M.D., Director of the Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition within the NIDDK
