NEW YORK, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals can now register for "Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Why Should I Take My Medications?" This free, live, interactive teleconference through the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation will take place on Thursday, March 6, from 1:00 pm to 2:15 pm EST and will address effective treatment planning for patients with Crohn's and colitis. Collectively known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), these painful and unpredictable digestive diseases debilitate 1.4 million Americans. The teleconference will feature Mayo Clinic College of Medicine physician, Sunanda V. Kane, MD, MSPH, Associate Professor of Medicine.

To register, call toll-free 1-877-547-5641 or visit http://www.rmei.com/ccfa. Registration is being handled by Robert Michael Educational Institute LLC.

"Patients, caregivers, and professionals will benefit from the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation's upcoming teleconference," says Kimberly Frederick, Vice President of Patient & Professional Services for the Foundation. "Dr. Kane will offer exclusive insight into IBD gained from her experience caring for patients as a board-certified physician in internal medicine-gastroenterology at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, and there will be added time for questions and answers from the live telephone audience."

In addition to an interactive question-and-answer session, participants will learn about various medical therapies used to treat IBD, key goals of treatment, the importance of taking medication as prescribed, and tools to help patients adhere to medical treatment plans.

Continuing education credit is being offered for nurses through the co-sponsorship of Robert Michael Educational Institute LLC and Postgraduate Institute for Medicine.
