THANKS!

Dear Member,

We are grateful that you made the effort to attend last week’s event. It was only your active participation that made it as successful as it was.

The beauty of our program was due to our talented presenters. We started with Dr. Suneeta Krishnareddy's clear presentation about how to Take Control Managing your IBD Decision. This was followed by the very informative speech by Dr. Bindia Jharap regarding fertility, which gave us a lot of hope concerning building our family. An insightful view of pediatric IBD by Dr. Nanci Pittman, and the powerful speech by Dr. Simon Lichtiger will definitely make us calmer about our children’s’ future. They offered us a perspective which our IBD family could identify with and absorb.

Additionally, we owe parcels of gratitude to individuals who gave of their time and contributed in many ways to the success of our evening.

First and foremost, our very special friends at CCFA (Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America), greater New York Chapter. You are our sounding board, our backbone, and our true encouragement. 

Mrs. Rhondell Demilici, Regional Director; you are our lifeline, our support, and a dynamic role model in our organization. Rhondell, our sincerest thanks to you for your insight and words of inspiration that seeped into our very bones.

An extra special thanks to Mrs. Katie Pouga, Regional Education and Support Manager; Katie, your dedication along with your nimble coordination of the night’s event are beyond words.
