KidFACT Board Members are a group of passionate parents, patients, and medical providers who are all affected by Inflammatory Bowel Disease in some way. Our board members want to reach out to other families who are affected by IBD and provide support. The support could be as much as an email, call or text just letting you know that we care and know what you are going through. Our board members have listed their contact information because they want you to contact them in order to provide support, advice, or just a listening ear when you are in need.
