RE: Survey for Approved Epidemiological Study conducted by Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America
Dr. Josh Korzenik and Dr. Sharyle Folwer from Massachusetts General Hospital’s, in cooperation of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, received the funding and approval to conduct an epidemiological study of Northport residents, both current and past, who have been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, crohn’s, or any other IBD disease.
This is a ground breaking study, which took decades of effort and struggle of countless concerned groups and residents to finally get underway. The results of this study can prevent future generations from the pain and suffering of the illnesses mentioned above, as well as finding better ways to treat, or even cure, them.
All the study requires from participants who are eligible is to complete a simple on-line questionnaire. The questionnaire includes questions that will assist them in discovering similarities of impacted residents, (such as age, diet, use of river, period of time exposed, as well as family health history and lifestyle, etc.)
All information provided will be confidential and seen only by Dr. Fowler and Dr. Korzenik. You may be contacted for your medical record regarding the diagnosis and treatment of the colitis (crohn’s, etc.). If you do not have these records, or are unable to locate them, they will do the legwork for you based on details you can provide (city, state, year diagnosed).
Anyone who does now, or ever did, live near or in Northport, WA and have been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, Diverticulitis, Iileitis, or any other IBD.
Contact Information Needed from Participants:
Please send either your e-mail or home address, depending on where you would like to receive the survey.
Please pass this information on to anyone you know who may be eligible for this study. If you have a deceased family member who suffered from any of the illnesses please complete the questionnaire for them as best you can.
It will only take a few minutes of your time to complete this survey that could help countless people from the pain and suffering you have had to endure.
