Crohn's and Colitis Awareness 2022

Last updated: December 2022

In honor of Crohn's and Colitis Awareness Week (December 1 through 7, 2022), we're raising awareness all month long! While raising awareness for Crohn's and colitis is vitally important no matter what month it is, this month, we have ways to rally together to raise our voices to say, "This is not just a bathroom disease!" We know it is SO much more, and together, we can address the stigma around a condition that affects so many people.

Here are a few ways to get involved and connect with other warriors going through similar experiences:

Weigh in on conversations and ask your own questions

Receive answers or advice from our team and the community. No judgments here! Have a question or want to weigh in?

A megaphone

Help spread awareness by sharing your own story

What do you wish people knew about your journey with IBD? What has impacted you the most while living with this invisible illness?

Connect socially
