Over 1.4 million Americans suffer from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), a chronic digestive disorder of the small and large intestine. The two main types of IBD are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. If you are interested in learning more about the management and treatment of IBD, the Illinois Chapter of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation urges you to attend their 17th Annual Patient and Family Education Conference and Medical Symposium.
