The following was the original text. But again, the meeting has been postponed.

The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation (formerly CCFA or Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America) is divided into statewide chapters. The Illinois Chapter has been a well respoected chapter and historically has run some of the best educational programs in the country for years.

The next Educational Symposium is coming in 2020, specifically March 14, 2020. It will be held at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare hotel. This is in Rosemont, a Chicago Suburb next to O’Hare.

There are two symposiums running in parallel: A patient centered symposium and a medical professional symposium.
