Today begins Crohn’s & Colitis Awareness Week
CCFA is proud to announce that the Senate has passed a resolution to make December 1 – 7 Crohn’s & Colitis Awareness Week! This is an important step toward recognizing the 1.4 million Americans living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and it commends the dedication of health care professionals and biomedical researchers.
“The passage of this resolution will give hope to the millions of Americans, including a growing number of young children, who struggle with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis that we will continue to focus our attention on these very difficult diseases,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV).
