Niagara Chapter Meeting

Niagara Chapter Meeting
Monday January 27, 2020

Real Canadian Superstore, Community Room
411 Louth St, St. Catharines

Crohn's and Colitis Canada chapter meetings are a time for the IBD community to come together, to learn and share from one another. 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.

Whether you are living with IBD or are a parent or caregiver of a loved one who does, these chapter meetings are a good way to meet new faces and discuss topics relevant to living with Crohn's disease and/or ulcerative colitis.
