IBD School Video Series

To help you, your friends and family better understand Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, the team of experts at Michigan Medicine Inflammatory Bowel Disease Program have created a series of short, educational videos called IBD School.

We have found that patients have many basic questions immediately after diagnosis and turn to the Internet for answers—answers that are often unreliable. We’ve also found that a lot of patients who have had IBD for years don’t know some very important information about disease complications, medication benefits and risks, cancer risks and preventative strategies, and strategies to reduce risk of infection and surgery for IBD.

This video series was created so you can be sure your information is reliable. We also make sure it’s easy to understand. Our goals are for you to understand your disease, understand your choices of tests and treatments, and make more informed decisions that will improve your health and well being.
