The Patient-2-Patient Education Project is a yearly event hosted by the University of Michigan Medicine and the University of Michigan’s Crohn’s & Colitis Student Initiative. It pairs Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) patients and advocates alongside medical professionals to discuss topics that are important to patients and their loves ones. This is a truly unique event in the world of IBD. It is also a free event with lunch and refreshments provided, hosted in the beautiful city of Ann Arbor, Michigan.

This year, I am grateful for the opportunity to speak on Alternative Therapies in IBD alongside Dr. Shrinivas Bishu, an IBD specialist gastroenterologist from the University of Michigan’s IBD Team. I believe this information is important to share, so I will be providing copies of my slides (along with some notes and key references) on this page within one week of the conclusion of the P2PEP event on April 13, 2019. If you are interested in seeing what I had to say, please keep an eye on this page. For those who attended my and Dr. Bishu’s talk, I encourage you to fact-check the information and delve into the references for further insight.
