The University of Michigan’s Patient-2-Patient Education Project (P2PEP) has gone virtual! Register for the event here:

“This event pairs patients and health care providers for interactive talks to address many of the everyday concerns of those living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Topics will include Anxiety and Depression in IBD, COVID-19 and IBD, and Alternative Therapies, as well as our popular Patient Medication Experience Panel, among others. There will be plenty of time for questions and audience participation in each talk.”

P2PEP 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’s also a free event! While it’s typically an in-person event in Ann Arbor, Michigan, this year’s P2PEP will be virtual due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
