Educational and Sometimes Humorous

Below you will find online video resources, both educational and humorous. Please note, the Center for Colon & Digestive Disease strongly believes that no sickness or disease is a laughing matter. However, we do feel that keeping a positive, and at times humorous, mindset is helpful to the healing process, and hope you will agree.
