Share Your Story 

Your story has the power to touch the lives of patients and their families living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Your story may be what inspires a patient to take that next step in his or her life or empower a patient to make that next difficult decision. 

New England Chapter Internship Program

Every semester, the New England Chapter offers a chance for students to intern with the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation. This immersive and hands-on experience is a great way for students to learn about working with foundations and non-profits like ours.

Thank You to our Chapter Sponsors
