CCFA's "mission is to cure and prevent Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis through research, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these digestive diseases." Features of this site include a Medical Library which has articles on basic facts, complications, testing, diet and nutrition, and coping with these diseases. Select Find-a-Doctor and then click on the state to get a list of CCFA member physicians. Easy-to-read, illustrated Educational Brochures are available in .pdf format. News Updates covers legislative news, clinical trials alerts, and new developments in diagnosis and treatment. This is a good site to explore if you or someone you care for suffers from Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, or inflammatory bowel disease.
