A few months ago I had posted some info about a UC patient advisory board meeting that myself and several others from this board had attended.  As a reminder it was put on by Shire, the company that makes Lialda.  They were (and continue to be) looking for patients input on how to further UC awareness and helping patients get the support they need from a variety of modalities.  I have been contacted by the company asking for help in getting more patients involved in their studies, and was wondering if one of the moderators would be willing to talk to him.  I can provide a phone number and/or email address if you are willing.  If not I understand.  Just thought I'd throw it out there since I think what they are doing is really great :)

Can you find out for me if they are interested in talking with crohns patients too? If so please let me know. I take Pentasa which is made by Shire and love talking about this disease...

Sure, I will do it - send me their email addy. Mine is under my screen ID. Btw, I think what you did took a special courage. Thanks for taking your time to talk to the company. :)
