About Crohnâ€™s and Colitis Foundation of America
The Crohnâ€™s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding the cures for Crohnâ€™s Disease and ulcerative colitis. It was founded in 1967.
Since founding, CCFA has remained at the forefront of research in Crohnâ€™s disease and ulcerative colitis. Today, they fund cutting-edge studies at major medical institutions, nurture investigators at the early stages of their careers, and finance underdeveloped areas of research. In addition, our educational workshops and programs, along with our scientific journal, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, enable medical professionals to keep pace with this rapidly growing field. The National Institutes of Health has commended them for â€śuniting the research community and strengthening IBD researchâ€ť.
