For professional cyclist Cory Greenberg, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) could have been a career ending diagnosis. But if cycling taught Cory anything, it was perseverance. Very quickly, Cory started to build a support team to help manage his illness — and that team includes CVS Specialty. Never one to rest on his laurels, Cory’s gone way beyond managing his illness, launching an advocacy group called Ride4IBD that’s inspiring others and funding much-needed research for people living with IBD, including Crohn’s and Colitis.
