Life isn’t always easy — especially for those who have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). But IBD shouldn’t hold anyone back.

During our 29th Annual Inflammatory Bowel Disease Education Day, a panel of health specialists from the Center for Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease and the Very Early Onset Inflammatory Bowel Disease (VEO-IBD) Program will explore the aspects of living with IBD. A unique group of experts — patients who suffer from IBD — will talk openly about how they cope with their disease.

  • IBD: What you need to know
  • Current and Future Therapies
  • Nutrition
  • Patient Panel - Hear directly from our patients, the true experts in IBD!
  • And other available resources!

Educational and fun activities will be provided for all patients 5 and older.
