Our mission

To connect, inspire, educate, and empower the
ulcerative colitis community.

We recognize that the impact of ulcerative colitis could go beyond the physical symptoms of UC. At
times, it may feel like you’re fighting a battle that no one else understands. That’s why we’ve created
a dedicated resource for education and inspiration. Here, you’ll find stories of the challenges and
triumphs of real people living with UC.

Meet our Talking UC board members

How we created an educational resource made by the UC 
community, for the UC community.

Talking UC is brought to you by Pfizer Inc. in partnership with real UC patients, gastroenterologists,
nurses, and the UC community. The Talking UC Advisory and Editorial Board* curates content to help
ensure that it is relevant, accurate, appropriate, and — most importantly — meets the needs of the
ulcerative colitis community.

Get to know a few members of our board and learn why they’ve chosen to get involved.
