On November 15, 2017, the Jill Roberts Institute for Research in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and its Director, Dr. David Artis, welcomed Chris Pedicone, Founder and President of CURE for IBD for a visit and tour of the IBD research facilities at Weill Cornell Medicine. Joining the visit were Patti Kaufman, a Trustee and Fundraiser and Lina Krivyan, also a Fundraiser at CURE for IBD. CURE for IBD is a volunteer non-profit organization devoted solely to fund IBD research in order to find new treatments and cures for family, friends, and others living with IBD. This notable moment would not have been possible without Jill Roberts, a long-term supporter of IBD research and patient care at Weill Cornell Medicine. CURE for IBD presented the Jill Roberts Institute with a check for $35,000 to support IBD research efforts. Dr Artis and members of the Jill Roberts Institute extended their sincere thanks to CURE for IBD and are delighted to partner with CURE for IBD to support ongoing and future IBD research efforts at Weill Cornell Medicine.
