When children are confronted with serious chronic diseases, parents often go to extraordinary lengths to advocate on their children's behalf. In some cases, this mission expands into tireless efforts to raise awareness and fundraise for research towards a cure. Guest Gene Kestenbaum did just this when his son was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease several years ago. His advocacy work for his child led him to become a national activist, and he served as President for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation.
Host Dr. Matt Birnholz sits down with Mr. Kestenbaum, who participated in the expert panel for the Villanovans in Healthcare event. They discuss his past and present involvement with Crohn's and Colitis Foundation and supporting ongoing efforts to find a cure for inflammatory bowel diseases.
