I am a member of CCFA, and have been receiving emails about presentations.    I have received info about a free online presentation called "Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Why should I take my medications?"   There is a link to email the info to a friend,  so I assume I can share with anyone I want....So thought I'd share the link with you all...I did watch it,  and most of it was very informative and worth watching.    Click here to check it out!
Tell me what ya think....
