Twenty-twenty-one brought challenges! Looking back on this year, we find there is a lot to be grateful for - not the least of which is this amazing community of improvers working together to improve the lives of thousands of young people living with IBD and their families. We'd like to express our gratitude.

"I am grateful for the culture of friendship, humility, and compassion that the ICN community has built..." - Maddie 

"Having a great network of people committed to quality improvement for IBD care fills me with hope..." - Kelly

"I am thankful to be a member of this incredible and inspiring community..." - Andrew

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 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)
