Gutsy Learning Series and Webinars

The Gutsy Learning Series and Webinar events provide unparalleled access to Canada's top IBD researchers and healthcare providers! It is a special opportunity to connect directly with leaders in the field and strengthen your knowledge of Crohn's and colitis across a variety of topics, including medication and emerging treatments, diet and nutrition, symptom and flare management, complications and extraintestinal manifestations, mental health, pregnancy and more.

The series is accessible throughout the year online from anywhere with internet access, and across Canada for in-person events. All of our events are recorded for future viewing on our Past Event Videos page.
