It's been a long time since I've been on HW and I see some familiar screen names (hi). I'm a clinical psychologist with Crohn's and spent a lot of time here when I was first diagnosed 10 years ago. I hadn't even started grad school back then. I work at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine now doing research in the gastroenterology division. We've done several IBD studies over the years and Peter has been fantastic in supporting us by letting me post info in the IBD community here. We couldn't do it without you guys, that's for sure.
With that being said, we have 2 studies that I wanted to let you know about
. Moderators, I have permission from Peter to post these. If you have any questions, please email me at email@example.com. Thanks and good health to everyone! PS - if you're 18-25, you can participate in both studies.

The title of this research study is "Validation of a Self-Efficacy Scale for Adolescents with Inflammatory Bowel Disease" and it is being carried out by Dr. Marisa Rodriguez and Dr. Laurie Keefer. The researchers at Lurie Children's and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, want to learn more about
how adolescents (teenagers) and young adults think about
their ability to take care of themselves and their IBD. This study includes answering questions online and should take about
30 minutes. If you're intrested, please click the link below:/adobeformscentral.com/?f=2pO2GnNPPMhGuAmueWgp7w
