As a researcher into invisible long-term conditions and a mis-diagnosed sufferer from IBS symptoms, she has a unique insight into what people with IBS and their families and friends want and need to know.
Dr Megan Arroll is a Senior Lecturer in Health Psychology at BPP University and is a member of the Health and Illness Research Team (HIRT), a group that works to better understand IBS and other invisible long-term conditions. www.meganarroll.com
