Welcome to the Greater San Diego & Desert Area 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 by Irwin M. and Suzanne Rosenthal, William D. and Shelby Modell, and Henry D. Janowitz, M.D. in New York City.
We are a strong team dedicated to assisting patients and families throughout their experience with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, as well as educating our communities about IBD. We serve San Diego, Riverside and Imperial counties.

Dr. David M. Roseman Memorial Fund
In 1979, Dr. Roseman established with Rolf Benirschke the San Diego Chapter of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. For the San Diego Chapter, he served as Chief Medical Officer and President of the Board. He was also a member of the Foundation’s National Board for eight years. Dr. Roseman’s commitment and dedication to his patients and the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation have inspired his son Jon Roseman, and daughter Dr. Anne Varick Lauder to establish the Dr. David M. Roseman Memorial Fund. Learn more and donate below.
