Our mentorship program, called Connect2Connect pairs older teens or young adults with IBD with a younger patient with Crohn’s or colitis. Newly diagnosed young patients or any pediatric patient who wants to talk to someone about living with Crohn’s or colitis can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We train our mentors to work with their mentee and stay in close contact to ensure the relationship is beneficial.
Here are our current C to C Mentors:
Mentor Ritu Gaikwad talks about her work with C to C
Mentor Asher Friedland and his reasons for helping others with IBD and also check out his Facebook Group, Crohn's Teens Crushing It which empowers teens living with IBD. Asher started this himself and it has 2000+ members!
Email us at email@example.com to be connected with someone who also lives with IBD.
