On Sunday, Feb. 9, 2020, patients of the Center for Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and their families attended the annual IBD Education Day. There were almost 200 participants between the in-person and virtual options.
A panel of health specialists explored the aspects of living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and handouts on important topics related to IBD management were provided to participants.

The IBD Family Research Council (FRC) consists of volunteers raising funds for research at the Center for IBD. They discussed the 2020 Walk for Hope and ways in which families could get involved in the fun. Learn more about the Walk for Hope.
The Vetri Community Partnership also held a cooking demonstration for the young adult and children activity room.
After the presentations, the specialists joined together for an IBD Expert Panel and answered questions submitted by the attendees. To conclude the event, a unique group of experts — IBD patients of all ages — talked openly about how they cope with their disease.
