Interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) is recurring pelvic pain, pressure, or discomfort in the bladder and pelvic region, often associated with urinary frequency (needing to go often) and urgency (feeling a strong need to go). IC/BPS can affect anyone, with more than 12 million people in the US experiencing symptoms.

HOST: Jeffrey Proctor, MD

We want you to relax and stay safe, so we will follow CDC guidelines for large gatherings and establish safe social distancing practices including: handing out ICA branded face masks, hand sanitizer on site, taking temperatures at registration, and enforcing six-foot physical distancing.

As of today, in-person Walks are still planned with additional measures to ensure participant’s safety. If stay-at-home orders require the Walk to become fully virtual, all Walk participants will be automatically converted to virtual participants.
