Patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) are often fearful about medication side effects and how the disease will affect their future — but their most pressing concerns weren’t what their providers expected.

In this webinar, you'll learn how Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center came to better understand UC patients' concerns and how Emmi developed an engagement tool to address those concerns with easy-to-understand information and empathy.

Featured panelists:

Corey Siegel, MD, MS
Associate Professor of Medicine, Dartmouth Medical School Associate Professor, Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice Director, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center

Dr. Siegel researches the risk and benefit trade-offs in IBD, develops models to predict outcomes in Crohn’s disease and creates tools to facilitate shared decision making for IBD patients. He’s also the founder of the BRIDGe group, an international research collaborative of IBD

Geri Baumblatt, MA
Executive Director of Patient Engagement, Emmi 

Geri has designed and produced multimedia patient engagement programs, including decision aids, and oversaw the creation of Emmi’s decision aid library.
