You may wonder how some people always seem to know what's happening. How are these people so plugged in? It's easy -- they probably set up news alerts. You can set up a news alert for anything and have the latest stories sent directly to your email. You can set it up to happen as the stories come out, once a day, or once a week. It's a really easy way to stay up-to-date, especially on the latest news about IBD. Trisha Torrey, About's Guide to Patient Empowerment shows you exactly how to do it. Good keyword phrases to use include "Crohn's disease," "ulcerative colitis," "inflammatory bowel disease," and "IBD." As a matter of fact, those are the keywords I use myself. Happy reading!
