is creating a directory of small businesses owned by people with Crohn's. The goal of the directory is to make a difference in the lives of those with chronic illness.

To include your business, send an email to with the title “My Small Business – Crohn's.” Please include the following:

  1. the name of your business and a brief, one-sentence description
  2. your contact information (address, email, social media profiles, and website)
  3. a headshot, your business logo, and a picture of your business


Then, tell us the story behind your business in 500 words or less. Suggested talking points include:

  1. What makes your business special?
  2. What inspired you to start your business?
  3. What is it like to have Crohn's and own a small business?


This directory and your business will be promoted in Healthline’s Crohn's center and in the Healthline Crohn's Facebook community.
