Yet, many patients suffer in silence by not telling their providers about uncomfortable bowel symptoms. 1 in 5 Americans would rather discuss their weight than talk about bowel issues with their provider – an alarming trend as GI conditions are often treatable and can worsen over time.

Our last guest is Aaron Sherinian, Senior Vice President of Global Reach for Deseret Management Corporation (DMC). He discusses the largest Global Faith and Media Study that looks at the media’s portrayal of faith and religion. It reveals a strong demand worldwide for more news media coverage on faith, despite the reality that journalists and editors admit coverage of the topics is rarely encouraged in newsrooms. The study reflects the feeling among the general population that media coverage can perpetuate faith-related stereotypes rather than protect against them. It also lays out some factors that journalists and editors think can lead to religious and faith stereotypes in news coverage.
