KidsFACT provides opportunities to learn about the latest information and medical research on IBD through educational materials, newsletters, and one-on-one interaction. Most importantly, we offer the chance for IBD patients and their families to give and receive information and support from one another.
Board members meet, usually on the first Tuesday of each month, to discuss providing patient outreach, promoting parent and community awareness, education and support, and fundraising opportunities.
Quarterly Support Group Meetings
This is a great opportunity to bring your family, friends, and anyone else who is affected by or wants to learn more about IBD. This is a very casual setting in which families are able to provide eachother support, advice, and a listening ear. Although the medical providers at GI for Kids are there for patients and families from a medical, psychological, and dietary standpoint, there is no greater support than someone who is going through the same daily struggles as you are. Please see our Calendar of Events for more information regarding upcoming support meetings.
Annually, KidsFACT awards scholarships for excellence in academics for high school seniors. They also offer sponsorship opportunities for children and teens who would like to attend Camp Oasis, a camp designed just for those suffering from IBD.
Community and Fundraising Events
KidsFACT hosts community and fundraising events in order to spread awareness of IBD, to bring people together for a common cause, and to raise funds to help support KidsFACT’s mission. Please see our Calendar of Events for more information regarding upcoming events.
