    Information Resource Center

While our educational resources contain almost everything you might need to know about Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, there are some things that you’ll want to talk with a Crohn’s and colitis information specialist about.


Whether you’re looking for a specific resource, referrals to other organizations, or answers to questions you can’t find anywhere else, you can speak with helpful specialists at CCFA’s Information Resource Center Monday thru Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EST:

   

    CCFA Partners

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.
