Education

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

The crohn’s & colitis foundation of America is also a great resource for accurate, up to date information on inflammatory bowel disease. Visit the website at: www.ccfa.org
