Do you struggle to find a diet plan that suits your nutritional needs without triggering your symptoms of IBD? Are you looking to find out about a diet that may be beneficial for people with Crohn’s and colitis?
Register for our Mediterranean diet for IBD webinar on Monday September 11, 2023 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm ET to hear about which foods are included and excluded in this diet and its anti-inflammatory benefits for people with Crohn’s and colitis. You will have the opportunity to connect virtually with IBD experts on the latest scientific evidence on the Mediterranean diet and the impact of diet on the gut microbiome in IBD, including research that was funded by Crohn’s and Colitis Canada.
You will have the opportunity to ask your questions ahead of time when you register or live during the event.
This event will be offered in English, with live simultaneous French interpretation.

Dr. Deanna Gibson (Ph.D.) is a Professor in the Department of Biology at the University of British Columbia on the Okanagan campus. She studies the impact of environmental triggers, like diet, on the gut microbiome and how this influences immunometabolism and the gut-brain axis in IBD. Dr. Gibson was the 2017 recipient of the Crohn’s and Colitis Canada grant program examining how the Mediterranean diet pattern alters the gut microbiome, inflammation and disease symptoms in ulcerative colitis. She has created novel genetically modified microbial medicines and examining how they reduce colitis moving towards the commercialization pathway for novel drugs designed for IBD. She is the co-chair for the CCC Scientific and Medical Advisory Committee and sits of the board of directors for CCC.
Dr. Natasha Haskey (RD, PhD) is a clinician-researcher whose work focuses on nutrition for IBD and the links between diet, inflammation and the gut microbiome. She completed her PhD in June 2022, under the supervision of Dr. Gibson. Dr. Haskey is continuing her research journey, working with Dr. Maitreyi Raman at the University of Calgary as a Post-doctoral fellow studying how intermittent fasting influences Crohn's disease. She has also been accepted into the TRIANGLE program which is a national training program aimed at transforming research and patient care in gastroenterology and liver, partly funded by Crohn’s and Colitis Canada.
