St. Christopher's Family Education Day !!


Life isn’t always easy...especially for the thousands of youngsters who have inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). But kids can still be kids...even with IBD.  A panel of health specialists will explore the aspects of living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
