“GATORS” Gainesville Area Teens Offering Remedies & Support: A support group for teens with Crohn's & Colitis

You are invited to join our group of teens living with Crohn’s & Colitis to share your story, get educated about IBD, support others, & find solutions for everyday challenges.

This group has been active since 2011 & is growing in participation.  We meet monthly, & gather for a casual dinner, discussion, & activities.  This group is affiliated with the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation for America (CCFA) & the UF Health Pediatric GI division.
