ImproveCareNow is currently a collaborative network of 30 pediatric gastroenterology centers who have come together to improve the care and lives of kids with Crohn’s and colitis. Our vision, however, extends much farther. We hope all children and adolescents in the United States with Crohn’s and colitis will soon be participating in ImproveCareNow so that over 10,000 more will be in remission.
