Resources

IBDU is dedicated to bringing educational resources to all people with IBD.

 

So often doctors fail to see their patients holistically and information falls through the cracks. We hope to empower young people with IBD by providing knowledge we deserve to have.

With these resources we aim to give:

- an understanding of our disease and medications

- an awareness of all approaches and options to IBD management 

- an opportunity to learn from one another's experiences

- a confident approach to navigating relationships with IBD
