2017 Annual Benefit Luncheon
Join us Wednesday, May 10, 2017 to support the IBD community and contribute to the progress that will lead us to a cure!
At this special event, over 400 business and community leaders, gastroenterology care providers, and friends of the Foundation come together for an inspiring afternoon to honor a leading volunteer, celebrate patients and educate guests on the continued need for funding to support the more than 1.6 million children and adults living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
This year’s luncheon program will feature the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation's quality of life initiatives with positive stories of hope from a Camp Oasis child and our groundbreaking IBD Qorus™ research project focused on improving the quality of care for those living with IBD.
A number of recent studies have shown a significant degree of variation in how physicians across the country diagnose and treat IBD. The success of your IBD treatment shouldn't depend on which doctor you see. Join us as we learn about the IBD Qorus™ research project, presented by Dr. Tim Zisman, MD, MPH, from UW Medicine—one of the organizations participating in the program.
IBD Qorus™ is a groundbreaking collaboration between patients and their healthcare providers that will lead to enhanced patient health outcomes for those living with IBD. Dr. Zisman will share information about this program that addresses the quality of care patients receive and how this initiative will play a vital role in defining and disseminating the highest standards of care for IBD, and supporting providers in delivering -- and continuously improving -- that quality of care.
Rachel Preston, a 14 year old camper, will share her endearing story of how living with an ostomy and attending Camp Oasis changed her life.
The program will also feature the presentation of the McCready Family Award to the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation volunteer of the year, Tiffany Meckle!
The Luncheon will feature a Fund the Mission donation moment. You are welcome to make a contribution at the event or donate in lieu of attendance online. Our suggested minimum donation is $150 per guest.
Help improve the quality of life for children and adults living with these diseases. Your donations online and at the benefit will help advance groundbreaking research in support of better therapies and cures.
