I'm Simon - a 24 year old living with arthritis, Crohn's disease and fibromyalgia. My own experiences have inspired me to advocate for other young people with similar experiences. Several years ago, I became involved in research to help professionals shape research and clinical care for the better. My work is now international, where I sit on several committees around the world, committed to bridging the gap between patients, their families, health professionals and industry. These experiences have also inspired me to begin a PhD, where my thesis is focused on improving the way that children and young people with arthritis manage their health.
