Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis Support Group
The Crohn’s and Colitis Support Group provides information, support and resources for patients and families with the goal of building a group that allows the Penn State Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center patients and their family members to develop connections with and receive support from other patients and care providers. Our scheduled speakers provide practical and up-to-date information on various aspects of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
The meetings are free and take place quarterly from 6-8 p.m.
For more information, contact Rachael Wentzel, IBD support group facilitator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease Support Group
The Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease Support Group provides adolescent pediatric inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients age 12-18 years and their parents with helpful information and the chance to meet others living with IBD.
The meetings take place quarterly at Penn State Children’s Hospital, rooms P1100/P1100A, and feature a brief presentation on educational topics, followed by discussion for the parents and an activity for the adolescents.
