IBD U was developed through a joint effort by Starlight and the Children’s Digestive Health Nutrition Foundation (CDHNF), IBDU (www.ibdu.org) is a resource site for young adults with IBD (Crohn’s and colitis) who are graduating and transitioning into adult healthcare.
The goal of the IBD U project is to help teens develop independence around managing IBD; its purpose is to provide resources that help young adults build on previous knowledge, improve self-management skills, develop a portable medical record and develop an action plan for dealing with IBD during transition into adulthood. In addition, it includes information to support and guide teens’ parents, friends/family, educators and employers during this important transitional period.
