Amber J. Tresca, Board Member

Amber J. Tresca is a health writer and patient advocate who has been living with UC since the age of 16. In 1999, at the age of 26, Amber underwent the 2-step j-pouch procedure due to pancolitis that was not responding to treatment and the high risk of cancer developing in her colon. After successful j-pouch surgery, her return to work in 2000 launched her career in advocacy, when she began writing part time about inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) for Verywell.com. She continued in the medical publishing industry for several years as a copy editor and web producer before pursuing a full-time freelance career as a health writer and advocate specializing in IBD and other digestive diseases. She lives in Connecticut with her husband and two children, both of whom were born post j-pouch surgery.

Vision for NUCA


NUCA provides an opportunity for the UC community to come together in a cohesive way that has previously not been possible. It is with excitement and shining hope for the future that I join the board of NUCA in order to more fully support people living with UC.
