Campus Connections

CCFA Debuts Campus Connections

As a college student living with Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis, we think you will find this site to be a helpful resource. Our online community can connect you to other students who have made a smooth and successful transition to college.

Here you will find tips for adjusting to your new environment and how to participate in local chapter events, and how you can volunteer and become an advocate for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America’s (CCFA) mission. Visit the campus connection website today! 

Seeking Mentors

The Chapter is still looking for mentors for the Power of Two Program. This is a support program where volunteers provide adults and supervised children with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, parents of children with IBD, and other family members with one-on-one phone or email support.

If you are interested in serving as a mentor and would like more information, please contact Caneka McNeil, Mid-Atlantic Regional Education & Support Manager, at
