Patient education is an integral part of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease program. Educating patients empowers them to take control of their illness and encourages them to play an active role in their health care decisions. We provide educational resources to help our patients better understand their disease.

Resources include information on:

  • The disease process of Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis
  • Nutritional resources
  • Medication and surgical options
  • Pregnancy and IBD
  • Depression and chronic disease
  • Extraintestinal manifestations
  • Complications in IBD
