Don't be​​ a turkey​​​

Get the facts. Thanksgiving is GERD Awareness ​Week.

​GERD is Not Just an Annoyance. ​Heartburn can cause cancer. Are you or someone you love at risk?

Talk to your doctor about the need to be screened if you:

  • Have more than occasional heartburn symptoms
  • Have experienced heartburn in the past, but the symptoms are now gone
  • Have any pain or difficulty swallowing
  • Have a family history of Barrett's Esophagus or Esophageal Cancer
  • Have an ongoing, unexplained cough
  • Have been speaking with a hoarse voice over several weeks
  • Have a long lasting, unexplained sore throat
  • Cough or choke when you lie down​
