2020 Fall Education Webinar Series
Virtual Experience / Go To Webinar

Join our community online this Fall 2020 for our Fall Education Webinar Series!

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 Bay Area professionals on the latest updates and information on various IBD topics.

What to Expect

Our Fall 2020 education series will provide attendees with an option to register for any or all of our listed presentations. The webinars will be hosted for a one-hour period and will showcase a different topic and speaker over a 10-week period! Each webinar will include: (1) speaker presentation with slides available to view, and (2) Q&A Panel Session with speaker(s).

Stay tuned as we continue to add more topics to our Fall 2020 Education Webinar Series!
