World IBD Day 2012 LogoMay 19th is set aside as a day to raise awareness about two chronic illnesses that together affect millions of people worldwide.


Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.  Together known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease or IBD, these two chronic conditions affect the digestive tract - from top to bottom.  The causes are not known, and while research continues there is currently no cure.  However, there is hope and a whole lot of heart - in the ImproveCareNow Network.


Thank you for joining us here, on this special day - World IBD Day 2012!   ImproveCareNow, together with strategic partner - the C3N Project - is engaging a community.  We look forward to having you as a part of this community.  We have so much to learn from each other.  LOOP is a place to share information, to learn, to discuss and to work collaboratively.  Together we can co-design the best standard of care for kids with IBD.  It begins with awareness and understanding.


You can help raise awareness and understanding about IBD and ImproveCareNow (today, tomorrow and the next day) by simply using your voice.  Ask questions and learn more about IBD and ImproveCareNow on Facebook and Twitter, and watch our videos on YouTube. Have CIRCLE, our eNewsletter, delivered to your inbox.  Email your questions and stories to so we can answer and share them on LOOP.  We have a fabulous group of clinicians, researchers, innovators, parents and patients all ready to write posts for LOOP and they want to hear from you.
