In 2016, we advanced the work of developing new treatments more than in any other single year. We directed $30 million to research — bringing the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation's total research investment from inception to $298 million. Because of our investment, the Foundation has been and will continue to be a part of every major scientific breakthrough in IBD research – a fact we should all be very proud of.
Below are just a few more highlights of our 2016 accomplishments:
- Served 804,201 participants through our patient and professional education programs.
Significantly enhanced public awareness and connected more individuals to the IBD community - 43,519 individuals raised funds and awareness through Take Steps, spin4 crohn's & colitis, and Team Challenge.
Made key advances in promoting patient and provider partnerships to increase the quality of care for all IBD patients - 20 sites are participating in the Foundation's quality of care initiative.
