You're not alone: Calgary has a vibrant Crohn’s and colitis community, made up of people with inflammatory bowel disease, families, volunteers, and more. Throughout the year, we come together at meetings and events like the Gutsy Walk to share experiences, raise funds and heighten awareness.

There are an estimated 9,500 people with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis in the Calgary community. We understand the challenges you and your family may be facing – because we face them, too.

Gutsy Learning Series Fall 2017

Living with Crohn’s or colitis is complicated.
The most common symptoms of abdominal pain, fatigue, and diarrhea are hard enough to live with, but throw complications like fistulas, reduced bone density or cancer into the mix, and things can start to sound a little daunting. Our expert speakers will help you understand what to expect and how you can manage your disease.
Take charge of your health by joining us on Thursday, November 30 from 6:30-8 pm EST for our Fall 2017 Gutsy Learning Series, an innovative patient learning experience. 
Whether you’re attending in person at McMaster University in Hamilton or registering to watch the live webcast, you’ll have the opportunity to listen to an engaging talk by Crohn’s and colitis experts as well as participate in our live Q&A session following the presentations.
