Nanaimo Chapter Meeting

Please join us for the Nanaimo Chapter Meeting
Vancouver Island Reginal Library, 6250 Hammond Bay Rd.
Tuesday, November 7, 2017
6:30 - 8:00pm
 

The Crohn's and Colitis Canada chapter meetings are a time for the IBD community to come together to support each other. Our focus is to create awareness of these diseases locally, improve the lives of those living with Crohn's and colitis, to grow our volunteer base and to raise funds to invest in research, patient programs, advocacy and awareness.


These illnesses are much more manageable when the community comes together, shares, and learns from one another.

 

The meetings are a time to share experiences and both give and receive support. Time will be set aside during each chapter meeting for networking and discussing topics relevant to living with Crohn's disease and/or ulcerative colitis.


The Nanaimo Chapter meets the first Tuesday of each month.  The meetings break for December, January, June, July and August.
 
For more information on the Naniamo Chapter, please contact Teri McGeachie at tmcgeachie@crohnsandcolitis.ca or 250-213-7761.
