More than a million people in the United States suffer from Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. It’s a hard disease to live with and there is no known cure. But with enough awareness and advocacy, we can do everything possible to ease
the suffering of those afflicted.
RECREATIONAL DEVELOPMENT In 2016, almost 13 percent
of Americans were insecure about their next meal. That
13 percent included 13 million children. Homelessness is only compounded by food insecurity. Sometimes, a good meal is the most important thing you can do for a person in need.
On June 3, Robins Kaplan joined
in the “Take Steps Walk 2017” to fund cures for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Thanks to the efforts of this team, the Boston office contributed over $500, which will aid in driving national awareness and critical funding needed to advance research and provide support resources to patients.
