Speaking Up About Crohn's-
Passing the mic to our readers

It takes a village, especially for those managing an often
misunderstood disease like Crohn's. When we asked our
readers what they wanted to share and read in this issue,
we found many who are proud to tell their stories, even the
embarrassing ones, and be a part of the Crohn's
community. Also in this issue, learn about a patient
advocate and why she feels that speaking up can be a
game changer in the patient journey.
