Power of Two Program:
|The Power of Two program provides one-to-one short-term support to patients and their families coping with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Individuals participating in the program are matched to volunteers who have had similar challenges and experiences for phone or e-mail conversations. This program is open to adults with IBD as well as parents of children with IBD. We are working to expand this program to serve spouses of people with IBD; if your spouse is an IBD patient and you are willing to be a Power of Two volunteer, we would love to have you!

CCFA Partners - Patients Helping Patients:
|CCFA Partners is an ambitious program from the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) designed to improve the quality of life for patients living with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) through research and education. We plan to enroll at least 10,000 or more patients in an online registry to obtain a better understanding of issues facing IBD patients, how they are functioning, what they eat, and how they receive treatment in different areas of the country. We use this network to provide topics for patients to discuss with their physicians and to help improve their quality of life.
