Jim and Leah's Inflammatory Bowel Disease Treatment at UPMC
When Jim and Leah met through friends during a workout, they had no idea how much they had in common. Along with sharing friends and a love for fitness, they both suffered from forms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) since they were teenagers.
Jim and Leah faced ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, respectively. Through the challenges of managing their diseases during high school and college, they both learned the importance of talking with others with similar conditions.
Along the way, Jim and Leah independently discovered the UPMC Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center. With the right team on their sides, they found relief after years of difficulty.
Jim and Leah have continued to receive care from the UPMC IBD Center for nearly a decade. During this time, they've tried new medications, ran multiple marathons, and even got married.
