Support Groups

We facilitate support group meetings for The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America each month in Naples & Ft Myers. The Naples group meets every 1st Thursday of the month, while the Ft. Myers group meets every 3rd Tuesday of the month. Check out our calendarĀ of events for current dates.

Another local resource we support is The Celiac Disease Southwest Florida Support Group, which is a group of people who enjoy meeting to share experiences and discuss what is on theirĀ minds in terms of life with Celiac disease. Contact Giselle Swan at (239) 961-3303 or Email Giselle.
