Ali, a gastroenterologist at OU Physicians Crohn’s and Colitis Clinic, is the author of the upcoming book “Crohn’s & Colitis for Dummies,” part of the popular “For Dummies” series that has published numerous how-to guides since 1991.
Ali’s book is available for pre-order and will go on sale in June. He answered questions about inflammatory bowel diseases and his upcoming book.
