2015 San Antonio Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis

My practice is excited to be involved in and help sponsor the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) walk this fall.  We have a large number of inflammatory bowel disease patients in San Antonio, TX and spend a lot of time on control of this disease.  Also, we have a separate research company dedicated to new IBD medications as well.

The Take Steps event will have live music, food, kids’ entertainment and educational materials to learn more about the CCFA and their efforts. I encourage you to dust off your walking shoes and come join us at this event as we help to raise awareness and money for this cause.
