We are hosting a Fall 2022 Virtual Community Conference as a way for us to connect, share information and updates, and learn from each other. This event is online, and is free & open to all who want to attend. We are keeping it brief (90 minutes), conveniently timed (6:30-8pm ET/3:30-5pm PT) and flexible - making it easy for you to drop in for some or all of the event. Our content is all intentionally focused toward patients and caregivers living with IBD. So, please join us (and invite someone you care for to join us) for #ICNVCC on November 9 from 6:30-8pm ET/3:30-5pm PT. 

Our Virtual Community Conferences are "drop in friendly" and focused on patient and caregiver 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. Preview the #ICNVCC agenda for November 9 and make a plan to join us.

At this upcoming #ICNVCC we are especially excited to have another opportunity to hear @ICNPatients member, Mahalakshmi share her Ignite Talk (aka personal narrative). Ignite Talks have become some of the most beloved and moving presentations at our Community Conferences over the years. 

"We've learned that when we share openly about IBD, we can end stigma and isolation." - Chris

If you enjoy listening to and being inspired by the stories of people living with IBD, make sure to join us at 6:40 pm eastern on Wednesday 11/9 to hear Mahalakshmi speak.

Put in your time and energy 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, to get involved with ICN:
  • Invite someone to join you at our November 9 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 IBD stories on the ICN 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 
  • 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 family member of a child with IBD to join the Parent/Family Advisory Council - "I was astounded by the instant bond established with parents I had never met. Every conversation provided me with strength. It ignited another purpose in my life." - Maria
  • Invite someone to download 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 - "Resources we found in CIRCLE eNews do not just focus on physical health, but also on critical areas like social-emotional needs, nutrition, back-to-school planning and mindfulness. These are valuable tools for my son to remain healthy." - Lisa
