Western Pennsylvania/West Virginia Chapter
Welcome to the Western Pennsylvania/West Virginia 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. The Western Pennsylvania/West Virginia Chapter is headquartered in Pittsburgh and serves the Western PA region including Altoona, Erie, and State College. We also serve the entire state of West Virginia.
Through various programs, we support our patients and family members with education programs, support groups, and community awareness and advocacy. Through our signature Take Steps program, we engage over 800 participants annually who walk and fundraise for the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation.Our latest research video is now available. To learn more about how two people can appear to have the same disease, but respond differently to therapy, watch "The Immune Response and IBD."
