The Romanian IBD patient association, ASPIIR, participated for the first time in World IBD Day. It organised a series of events during three days, starting from 19 of May, in order to raise awareness about IBD in Romania.
These activities included a theater performance, a conciert, a giant intestine exibit in Bucharest's central park where people could walk through and experience the "inside" of IBD. We also organised a press conference involving well known gastroenterologists from the Fundeni Hospital.

Finally, we are also pleased that a member of our association went to Brussels to run as part of the EFCCA team at the half marathon. Well done to Christian and congratulations for making the race and bringing us back a medal!!!
