How does having Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis have an impact on your career? The symptoms of IBD, as well as the cost, can affect the ability to work in the same way as healthy people. Three women who live with IBD, Megan Starshak, Mary Elizabeth Ulliman, and Tina Aswani Omprakash, tell their stories about coping with college, first jobs, and career derailment as a result of their disease.

Information discussed in this episode includes Clostridium difficile (C diff) Infection, Short-Term Disability Insurance, Colectomy Surgery, J-pouch Surgery, and  IBD and the Americans With Disabilities Act.
