Get Your Full Course with Sunny Anderson

Get Your Full Course, is an educational campaign designed to provide resources for people living with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) on the paired role of nutrition and appropriate therapy in managing IBD.  Produced in collaboration with Tonic Life Communications for Janssen Biotech, Inc. and the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA).

Get Your Full Course features television host and Food Network celebrity cook Sunny Anderson, who is speaking publicly for the first time about her journey with UC.

“Having lived with UC for more than 20 years, I recognize the importance of talking more openly about the disease and educating people with IBD that we don’t have to shy away from food because of our disease,” said Sunny. “Food is a big part of my life. I am excited about Get Your Full Course and its focus on helping the IBD community learn about foods we can enjoy that are also rich in the nutrients we sometimes lack due to the way the disease affects the intestines.”

Novartis About Advanced Melanoma Global Campaign

Working with Novartis Oncology and Cohn & Wolfe, we created a series of animations explaining Advanced Melanoma.

Melanoma is a type of skin cancer most commonly caused by damage to the DNA in a certain type of skin cells called melanocytes, often due to exposure to ultraviolet light. This damage can cause skin cells to form cancerous tumors, but if caught early it is almost always curable. However, if left untreated, melanoma can spread, or metastasize, to other parts of the body. This animation video provides additional details about advanced melanoma.

“I think the most important thing, and the most significant advice that I can give to any individual living with ulcerative colitis is to become informed. You can’t really decide what treatment plan is best for you, until you know what exactly is happening within you.

Talk to people, don’t be afraid to open up. It’s a very real situation and in order to have a real end result and to feel that you can get back to what you love to do you need to be able to share and to really open up and express what’s going on within your mind and your body.”
