Talk with an Information Specialist

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 Irwin M. and Suzanne R. Rosenthal IBD Resource Center (IBD Help Center), Monday thru Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EST:

Welcome to the IBD Help Center Education Corner!!!

The role of nutrition is one of the most frequently requested topics in IBD by our constituents. A recent study focused on the knowledge and perceived importance of nutrition, patient–provider interactions regarding nutrition and use of nutritional resources. Results demonstrated thirty-three percent of gastroenterologists reported not routinely screening their IBD patients for malnutrition and 27%  of patients rated their knowledge of nutrition in IBD as “very good.” To learn further study results of gastroenterologists, dietitians, nurses, and patients knowledge and use of resources in nutrition in IBD you may read the journal article                   “Knowledge, Attitudes, and Beliefs Regarding the Role of Nutrition in IBD Among Patients and Providers.” To access this article, please feel free to reach out to the IBD Help Center at .
