  • Children diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are vulnerable to growth delays with irreversible consequences, making pediatric IBD a critical health issue.
  • IBD often imposes a significant impact on the quality of life through ongoing symptoms, reduced ability to work, social stigma, bathroom access, difficulty with physical intimacy, and a restriction in career choices.

  • Please visit www.worldibdday.com for more information, including links to the patient groups listed below. The patient organizations will also be represented at booth 1550 during Digestive Disease Week.
