Aaron Blocker

Patient Leader

My name is Aaron, and I have Crohn's Disease and Avascular Necrosis. When I was diagnosed, I had never heard of Crohn's or met anyone with the disease. Because of that, I started an online Facebook page to meet others. Six years later my community has grown tremendously and so has my passion for helping patients, educating people about IBD, and spreading awareness. I strive to make a difference where I can. I am also four hip replacements in as well due to AVN. I'm a graduate student working on a Master's in Biology Research.. My end goal is a Ph.D. in Immunology to pursue my own IBD research and to use my knowledge to help IBD patients understand current IBD Research.
