International Adhesions Society





IAS Advertising Policy


he IAS is a volunteer organization for the promotion of awareness and research into Adhesion Related Disorder (ARD), as well as the support of patients and families afflicted with ARD. With origins in 1996, and founded in 1999, our patient demographics include men, women and children of all ages from around the globe.

Support for the IAS is provided free of charge by Synechion, Inc. Due to our continued growth of patient support groups and needs, we seek donations from IAS members, interested individuals, members of the medical community and for-profit organizations to help defray operating costs and provide additional programs and offerings to our members.

The IAS is not a 501c3 or other registered charity.

To our sponsors, we offer a generous advertising package that provides for maximum exposure to our increasing website traffic.
