Episode 33 of the imPACt podcast - Pediatric IBD Patient Autonomy

Autonomy means being in control of your own decisions. For pediatric patients living with IBD, there comes a time when you get to start making decisions about your health and care more on your own. Join me (Hannah), Leela, Kera, Fizza and Ryleigh for a chat about patient autonomy in IBD care.


Episode 32 of the imPACt podcast - What Patients Need From Providers with SWAP

We are excited to welcome back former PAC co-chair, Dr. Jennie David (now a licensed pediatric IBD psychologist) as a host for this episode of imPACt. During episode 32 we talk about whole person care in IBD and get to ask a psychologist, social worker, and medical provider (nurse practitioner) how they came to work in pediatric IBD and how they learned about the mental health components of IBD.


IGNITE - My friend...IBD

What if your closest friend had a habit of interrupting your plans and not listening when you begged them to stop? You might might wish to end that friendship. But, as Mahalakshmi points out in her #IgniteTalk, which she shared at both our in-person and our virtual community conference this fall, when "friend" is really a metaphor for IBD there isn't really a choice. 

Be inspired by Mahalakshmi's #IgniteTalk 🔥 


Episode 30 of the imPACt podcast - High School, College, Grad School & IBD

Join me (Vanessa), Hannah and Fionna for our conversation about IBD during different stages of schooling. Between the three of us, we have lived experiences with both Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, with being diagnosed at different life stages (during early education and in high school) and with balancing high school, college and grad school with IBD.

Episode 29 of the imPACt podcast - Why Storytelling Matters

“If you just sit and give folks a list of facts, they can debate those facts or try to refute them. They can't debate your story. Because it's your story." - Chris Keck on the imPACt Podcast 

Join me (Vanessa), Becky and Fionna for our conversation with Chris Keck from ImproveCareNow. We discuss storytelling - particularly personal narratives - and why stories matter.


Episode 27 of the imPACt podcast - Mental Health and IBD Flares

Welcome to the second episode in a 3-podcast series we're doing in collaboration with the ICN SWAP group (SWAP stands for Social Workers & Psychologists). In this episode, you'll hear me (Ryleigh) and my fellow PAC member Avery talking with Lauren Potthoff, PhD - an IBD psychologist at Lurie Children's in Chicago - about mental health during IBD flares.


Episode 26 of the imPACt podcast - IBD and Medical Trauma

Join me (Autumn), Henry & Samantha for a conversation about medical trauma in IBD with ICN SWAP (Social Workers & Psychologists) group members Dr. Jennie David (licensed clinical pediatric IBD psychologist) and Dr. Alexandra Fuss. We are honored to have them join us to discuss this important topic.


Crohn's disease has ultimately, and endlessly, reminded me to nurture and love the body I have been given and led me to my passion for healthcare

I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease at six years old, a year after I started experiencing symptoms. I have now been managing this chronic illness for 16 years! In addition to being diagnosed young, I was living in the Netherlands at the time -- while I wasn't born here, all of my family is from here and Dutch was my first language.


Episode 25 of the imPACt podcast - IBD, Meds, Biologics...Oh My!

Medications and biologic drugs are often a big part of managing IBD. Shira and I (Fionna) were texting about our personal experiences with meds and biologics when we realized others in the IBD community might benefit from being able to listen in on our conversation. So, we decided to make a podcast episode about it!
