The National Foundation of Swallowing Disorders is dedicated to providing support to patients, their families, and friends impacted by dysphagia. We provide support by providing referrals to specialists who assess and treat dysphagia, connecting patients and their families with support groups, inviting our community members to share stories of their experiences with dysphagia, and more.
