The goal of The Foundation for Nutrition and Inflammatory Bowel Diseases in Children (NIBD) is to foster research into the clinical significance of nutrition in the management of IBD, and to educate patients in the importance of adhering to a nutritional protocol that has now been well demonstrated to be extremely beneficial for the well being of juvenile IBD patients.
As many of you know my daughter, Kathie Grovit Ferbas, Ph.D. is a respected HIV research scientist and has served for many years as the Scientific Administrator of the UCLA AIDS Institute. Kathie will continue in this position and now has been appointed as the Scientific Administrator of the UCLA COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Clinical Research Response Team as well. I know that our NIBD family wishes her much success (and safety).
