Welcome to the 116th Congress

It's a new Congress and a great time to get engaged in advocacy by introducing yourself - or reintroducing yourself - and sharing information about your experience with IBD. In addition, the template email below provides a brief overview of public policy priorities we will advance throughout 2019. This is a great way to contact your legislators early and build a relationship with them throughout the year. 

In general, the Foundation seeks to improve patient access to care and to support funding medical research. 

Please personalize the email below and tell your story. You can erase '[TELL YOUR STORY]' and replace it with a paragraph or two about your experience with IBD and why these policies are important to you.

We hope you will continue join us in advocacy as we work to advance policies to improve care for IBD patients.
