Our mission is to improve the quality of life for BIPOC who are affected by IBD, Digestive Disorders and associated Chronic Illnesses; through Community, Research, Education, and Advocacy.

COGI-EiGI-2024_1-Primary (1)


Digestive diseases intersect with many other illnesses, like colon cancer, when under diagnosed and mis-treated. And understanding the landscape through partnership pushes our quest for equity further along, faster.

At Equity in GI, we stop and assess the change we must see and how to actualize it for Black and Brown patients. Our partners and community members converge to elevate the importance of understanding digestive diseases, advancing science through research, and establishing patient-centered care.

Through education, engagement, and community, this event activates our calls to action within our entire ecosystem.
