Meet Others Living With IBD

Chapter Meeting
If you are living with Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, or if you are a family member, friend, or caregiver of someone who does, we welcome you to join us.  
 
Join us from the comfort of your home to meet new faces from communities across BC/Yukon. Our time together will give us the opportunity to share experiences, learn from one another, build new relationships, and maintain a strong community. We will have the opportunity to converse about topics related to IBD. 

Listed below are the dates and times of up and coming zoom meetings. Contact me to let me know the date/s that interest you. We will see you receive the link to join. No zoom account is needed. We look forward to meeting you. Contact Teri, tmcgeachie@crohnsandcolitis.ca or 250-213-7761.
 
These meetings are run by chapter volunteers.
