South Lane Bistro is a proud supporter of local organizations, giving back to those who help make Connecticut great. Thank you for dining with us on Tuesday, December 6, 2016, for the Give Back Tuesday event to support the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America. Ten percent of all proceeds from the evening are going to their fine organization.
The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding the cures for Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improving the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases. It was founded in 1967 by Irwin M. and Suzanne Rosenthal, William D. and Shelby Modell, and Henry D. Janowitz, M.D.
Since its founding nearly five decades ago, CCFA has remained at the forefront of research in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, collectively known as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Today, CCFA funds cutting-edge studies at major medical institutions, nurture investigators at the early stages of their careers and finance underdeveloped areas of research.
Beyond research, CCFA is collaborating with healthcare providers to improve IBD quality of care, as well as educating, supporting, and empowering patients and their caregivers through patient-centric education and advocacy programs.
