Twice a year we host a Virtual Community Conference to connect, grow and learn from our diverse community of improvers. These web-based events are free & open to all who wish to attend. We hold them in the evenings, so community members can drop in when it works for them or if there is a specific session of interest. Our next event is on December 8 from 7-8:30 PM eastern (4-5:30 PM pacific). We hope you will join us!


Virtual Community Conferences are "drop in friendly" and cover patient and parent focused topics, so please feel welcome to join us for some or all of the event. We do ask that you RSVP so we can send you the webinar info. Here is our agenda for December 8:

When we meet on December 8, there is a new session that we're feeling pretty excited about. It's called "Connecting with our CIRCLE," and it's designed to be a space for us listen to what you want and need (related to life with IBD as a patient, caregiver and/or supporter.) Join us at 7:40 PM eastern for this interactive session and share your voice and experience with us.


When you put your time and energy in on behalf of someone else - no effort is too small - because everything we do in ImproveCareNow is magnified by the efforts of thousands of other improvers. And together we bring about a better quality of life for many. Here are some actions you can take, or invite others to take:
  • Invite someone to join you at our December 8 Virtual Community Conference (this free, web-based event is a great way to learn more about ICN from the patient & parent perspective)
  • Invite someone to stay #InTheLOOP with our stories on the blog - "Sharing stories and experiences is affirming and validating. Our stories reach others and they help, which is the most wonderful part of being involved with ImproveCareNow." - Quint (We will be posting 3 more #IgniteTalks - like John's - to the blog over the next couple weeks. By signing up, you'll be the first to know!)
  • Invite a patient (14+) to join the Patient Advisory Council - "Being part of the PAC helps me remember that I'm not alone in this journey." - Rhea 
  • Invite a parent or guardian of a child with IBD to join the Parent Working Group - "I believe I have helped other newly diagnosed families not feel as lost as I was. I believe I am making a difference in my community. And none of this would have happened if I hadn't joined the Parent Working Group." - Carrie
  • Invite someone to download our free, co-produced IBD resources - "Physical resources provide patients with actions that we can take toward bettering our quality of life, as well as our current and future care." - Quint
  • Invite someone to Join Our CIRCLE (connect with our welcoming & supportive community, and receive IBD resources, stories, and ICN updates & opportunities)
