    The Crohn’s in Childhood Research Association, in collaboration with Dr Rob Heuschkel and the Paediatric Gastroenterology team from Addenbrooke’s Hospital, would like to invite you to a meeting for children and young adults with IBD and their families at the AirSpace Conference Centre, Imperial War Museum, Duxford, on Saturday 10th May, doors open at 9.30am for a 10am start.

    There will be an opportunity to meet members of the medical profession, members of the CICRA Team and the opportunity to ‘chat’ with other families in a similar situation.

    The day will be split into different stages including talks on medical matters and research; a presentation from a young person and time for questions.  A buffet lunch will be provided.  A doctor, an IBD nurse and a young CICRA Supporter will be on hand to discuss school, treatments, socialising etc.  In the afternoon parents will be invited to join small rotating discussion groups of their choice with an opportunity to ask questions of specialists allowing families to move freely between the groups that interest them most.

    • Living and coping with IBD
    • Research
    • Clinical & Treatment
    • Surgery & Stoma Care
    • Nutrition & Diet
    • Growth & Development

    In the afternoon we will have a session for young children with an entertainer, an informal session for adolescents & teenagers and a new group session for age 18+ sufferers of IBD.

    The meeting will close around 3.30pm, which will give you time to enjoy free admission to the museum which closes at 6pm.
