About the education programme

**Important notice: In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation currently affecting the UK the charity has taken the decision to cancel all Education Programme events. As a charity we are taking all necessary steps to ensure we are protecting the health and wellbeing of our members, supporters, volunteers and staff, and feel that cancelling these events is the most sensible and appropriate action to take.**

Informative event, I gained a lot of clarification and knowledge from the two speakers. It will help me going forward with living day to day with my Crohn's.

Very interesting and considering the subject matter it wasn't too heavy.

The 2 IBD nurses who ran the session were lovely, positive and friendly.
