Nutrition plays such a significant role in the lives of IBD patients.That’s why we offer a free, 1-hour education session for patients with Crohn’s Disease (CD) or Ulcerative Colitis (UC) to help with improving overall nutritional status. This is a dietitian-led, interactive class focusing on the most current information to promote gut health. There is conflicting dietary information in the media as it relates to nutrition and CD/UC. This class dispels myths while promoting a nutritionally balanced diet.
