Living with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) can be difficult, but the right resources and support can make day to day living much easier. The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding the cures for Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis.
In an effort to raise awareness and support for patients and families battling Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis, Dr. Jeanne Tung, M.D., highlights some of the research and activities, and invites you to join the conversation during CCFA's Awareness week.
The week of December 1-7, 2015 is reserved to encourage all Americans to help find cures for inflammatory bowel diseases and raise support for the now 1.6 million Americans battling Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis through awareness and advocacy.
