COCCI Community Conversations is coming to your campus to change up the game! If we know better, we do better - right? This experience is meeting you in the prime of your life to give you the tools to make decisions on a topic that we can never avoid - our health.
One of the major health topics that is often off of the radar, in black and brown communities, is digestion. Did you know that there are diseases associated with the gut - 2 of which are Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, often under the umbrella term IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease). Both of these diseases are chronic illnesses that are under-diagnosed in black patients.
Did you know that “it is 91% unlikely that black and brown patients who present with classic IBD symptoms in the ER will receive an IBD work-up to determine whether or not they have these diseases”
COCCI is working to change that!
(Digestive Diseases and Science, 2021; 66 (7): 2200-2206).
Let’s get together, shake a lil’ bit, eat a lil’ bit, talk a lil’ bit, and make a difference in our future!
