Welcome to the Georgia Chapter!                            

The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding the cures for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. It was founded in 1967 nationally, and the Georgia Chapter was founded in 1987 by Louise and Leo Benatar, Betty and David Berkman, and Janet and Elvin Price. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, this chapter serves the entire state of Georgia.

Meet the local chapter staff, Board of Trustees, and Chapter Medical Advisory Committee.


Thank you to our chapter sponsor:













*The Foundation remains deeply concerned about the impact of COVID-19 on U.S. communities, and are committed to placing the health of the IBD community at the center of all our decisions.  As the country begins reopening, we continue to monitor the situation and make the best decisions for our patient and caregiver community.

We are closely following all CDC, local health and state government recommendations regarding indoor and outdoor gatherings for every community in which we operate. 

We are evaluating each of our in-person programs based on a variety of factors, including local health advisories, venue, and expected attendance. We intend to take special care and maintain a conservative stance given the nature of inflammatory bowel disease and the potential risks to members of the IBD community. The Foundation’s decisions regarding reopening of any in-person events will be made in full consideration of the local chapter’s situation and perspective.
