The next family day will be held at the Novotel Birmingham Centre Hotel on Saturday 16th March from 10.30a.m. to 4.30p.m With the usual format there will be speakers (including a young person talking about their experiences) followed by a buffet lunch and informal discussion groups where you can ‘Ask the Expert’ about almost any aspect of Crohn’s and colitis in the young person. The groups we hope to cover are:
- Living and coping with IBD
- Clinical & Treatment
- Diet & Nutrition
- Surgery & Stoma Care
The teenagers will have their own session to ask questions of a doctor, nurse and young CICRA representative in an open discussion about living and coping with Crohn’s or Colitis plus any other subject that they wish – school, socialising, relationships etc. but they can of course stay with their parents if they wish
An entertainer will be provided for the younger children for at least part of the day.
If you have a child or teenager with Crohn’s or Colitis in your family and would like to come along you are very welcome to join us. Please ring 020 8949 6209 or contact us through this link.
