Marnina Cowan

Patient Leader

I am foodie, a world traveler, a public health professional, a dancer, a teacher and a patient advocate who lives with Crohn's Disease. When I was at my sickest point, my doctors told me I would never be able to dance or run again (two of the things I love most). By listening to my body and my doctor, adhering to my medication and doing what makes me happy, I continue to prove my doctors wrong every day. My husband, Seth and I, run I Be a fooDie, a blog that provides direct nutritional advice and recipes for the management of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Through the blog, we dispense diet management advice and provide a venue for new scientific research.
