Fall 2020 Patient Education Series
Virtual Experience

Join our community online this Fall 2020 to learn more about Inflammatory Bowel Diseases!

At the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation, one of our top priorities is always the health and safety of our patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals, and Foundation staff. Unfortunately, after careful review of the national trends and important guidelines concerning COVID-19, along with discussions among our trusted medical advisors, the Foundation has made the difficult decision to host our Fall 2020 educational programs virtually.
We look forward to you joining us online for a wonderful, educational series for all individuals! Our Fall 2020 presentations will allow you to hear directly from Arizona professionals on the latest updates and information on various IBD topics.

What to Expect

Our Fall 2020 education series will provide attendees with options to register for any or all of our listed presentations. The presentations are scheduled for one hour and will occur on a multi-week basis during Fall 2020. Each webinar will showcase a different topic and speaker each week! These webinars will include: (1) speaker presentation with slides and recording available to view, and (2) Q&A Panel Session with speaker(s).
More information regarding each speaker, topic, and the presentation's date and time, will be made available on this page soon.
