Vision for NUCA


My goal for NUCA is to bring people living with UC and their families the support services, educational opportunities, and programs that will improve their quality of life. I look forward to engaging with the UC community in a holistic way and learning how NUCA can assist people with UC as they navigate the everyday challenges of life with chronic illness.
