The National Ulcerative Colitis Alliance (NUCA) is a qualified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

2018 NUCA Board of Directors

Volunteers are a critical part of the NUCA success in serving the ulcerative colitis (UC) community. The lasting contributions of time, talent, and dedication from volunteers help to ensure that NUCA fulfills its mission.

Accordingly, volunteers make up the NUCA Board of Directors and also serve as chairpersons and members of NUCA program committees. NUCA board members include experts in the inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) field and UC patient advocates from different professional backgrounds and walks of life, all of whom are devoted to improving the lives of people with UC.

The diverse mix of patients and professionals represented on the NUCA Board of Directors offers unparalleled expertise in providing people with UC and their caregivers with services and support.
