Prevea Health

Prevea Health adult Crohn’s and colitis support group

 
Attending a support group is a proactive step that will help you stay healthy. We come together to share experiences and ideas, provide emotional support and build lasting relationships. You are not alone when managing this disease.
 
Support groups are important because they help hold patients accountable for their personal goals, offer encouragement and motivation for greater success, and help patients overcome obstacles.
