Patient Support Programs in the U.S.

As part of our commitment to patients and to further the understanding of severe diseases, UCB supports a number of programs for patients and their families. These varied initiatives include sponsorship programs, informative websites, social communities, and scholarships, all of which work toward improving the quality of life for those affected by severe diseases.

Crohn's & Me®

"Crohn's & Me" is for people whose lives are affected by Crohn's disease - patients, friends and family. The website has helpful educational information and tips for living with Crohn's disease, such as information about diet, travel ideas, videos from doctors and patients, and other resources. Visitors can also download a Crohn's disease wellness tracker and the "Crohn’s Advocate" magazine, including the interactive iPad version of the magazine.

Visit the Crohn's & Me website and join the Crohn’s & Me Facebook community.

Epilepsy Advocate

Created by UCB in 2006, the "Epilepsy Advocate" program was developed to provide a community where people with epilepsy and their loved ones can learn more about epilepsy and how to manage the condition.

Parkinson's More than MotionTM

"Parkinson’s More than Motion" is a program dedicated to portraying the full realities of living with Parkinson’s disease (PD). "More than Motion" provides a glimpse at the real lives of people with PD to find out how they cope day to day, and how they aim to keep active and involved with life despite the challenges that PD can present.
