On June 29, 2021, Evoke Pharma, Inc. (“Evoke” or the “Company”), EVERSANA, the Company’s commercialization partner, and The International Foundation for Gastrointestinal Disorders (“IFFGD”), announced Evoke’s membership into IFFGD Industry Council. Evoke will join a likeminded group of organizations and brands focused on bettering patients affected by gastrointestinal disorders. As part of the Industry Council, Evoke will participate in biannual council meetings to gain industry insights and provide feedback on future plans for IFFGD.

In addition to the Industry Council, Evoke is excited to sponsor the IFFDG’s upcoming 30th Anniversary Digestive Health Virtual Walk in August 2021 during Gastroparesis Awareness Month. This walk is a unique fitness event which will provide participants with an opportunity to engage at their own pace and as their health and schedules permit. To honor the thirty years of the IFFGD’s existence, the overall campaign goal is for all participants to collectively walk 10,950 miles over two weeks. Goals will also go beyond physical fitness by encouraging participants to participate in activities that promote general wellness such as scheduling a doctor’s appointment, trying a new gut friendly recipe or starting a log of their meals and/or symptoms.
