Who created the PoopUp and why?

With the support of our partners, the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation created the PoopUp experience to give both kids and adults a FUN way to learn about inflammatory bowel disease. We hope that the PoopUp will help to educate the public and build familiarity with the disease and its symptoms, while reducing stigmas surrounding Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
