Educational resource for GI's working with Crohn's patients.  Its a great resource for self learning.  This was developed for physicians, but great tool for us!

Sad Mom,

There is just a warning on the T & C that says if you are not a medical professional that you should not use the site to diagnose yourself, etc. As jdiane said, anyone can register. Just put yourself as "Other Professional". :)
