Weekend Long IBD Retreat Helped Me to Own My Crohn's

 6 months ago       130 Views

Girls With Guts (GWG) kicked off its first-ever Newbie Retreat, a weekend-long event for new members of the organization that was held at Trout Lake in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, from June 7 to 9, 2019. The nonprofit founded by Jackie Zimmerman in 2013 is dedicated to supporting and empowering women with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, or ostomies, through the building of sisterhood and self-esteem.

For me, other than writing a blog post for GWG and partaking in closed group chats on Facebook, I hadn’t had too much exposure to GWG prior to the Newbie Retreat. So this weekend was not only my first time attending, it was also my first time meeting the board members and many women from all over the United States and Canada who, like myself, are living with a chronic condition.
