Host: Rebecca Kaplan

Dealing with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) on its own is difficult, but managing it with a professional athletic schedule is another task altogether. Dajuan Wagner, a former NBA player, was diagnosed with IBD early in his career. In this episode, he will discuss how he learned to manage his disease, and his advice for physicians treating IBD patients who are also athletes. He is joined by Rebecca Kaplan of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation.
