Aaron Blocker

Patient Leader

My name is Aaron, and I have Crohn's, AVN, Osteoporosis, a rare genetic disease called hypophosphatasia and 4 total hip replacements. I started my advocacy work in 2009 because I wanted to meet other IBD patients so I jumped in online and started a page. Today that has grown into something I would've never dreamed of and I am very passionate about helping others. It's taken a team to get to where I am today but I want to makesure people have a safe place to come and get support and find credible information. I also have a MSc in Biomedical research with my end game being a P.hD. "Won't it be great when we come together, not to work towards a cure but to celebrate its discovery!"
