Thursday, July 17, 2014 at 8:00 PM
With so many available treatment options for inflammatory bowel
patients and caregivers must make the choices that best
fit their needs. Join us for an free webcast that will provide
in-depth information on IBD treatments
and the resources needed to make
informed decisions about managing IBD care.
Participants will learn more
about the risk and benefits associated with each treatment, and
questions to ask the healthcare team when evaluating the options.
