The Hawke's Bay Crohns & Colitis Support Group welcomes you to a awareness/information meeting on Sunday, to commemorate World IBD Day, the theme of which this year is Improving quality of life for people with IBD". The meeting is an opportunity for people to increase their knowledge about Inflammatory Bowel Disease and what resources are available in the area, to hear interesting guest speakers and to meet new and long-standing members of the group. It is particularly relevant for New Zealanders, as we have one of the highest rates in the world and it is being increasingly diagnosed in children.

World IBD Day is part of a global campaign internationally commemorated on May 19, when various landmarks such as Niagara Falls will be illuminated in purple. In Hastings both the fountains by the town clock in the centre of town and in Civic Square by the library will be coloured purple to highlight the occasion.
