We need your voice! Join the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation for a day of advocacy at the Georgia State Capitol.
Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis affect more than 42,000 people in Georgia; 10% of whom are under the age of 18.
In 2018 we took 25 patients and caregivers to the Capitol and lobbied for House Bill 519 to change Step Therapy protocols, and it ALMOST PASSED! 

We need you to come with us in 2019 to tell your story to your legislators, and tell them how they can support your health and future.
