Take part in research
This could mean taking part in a drug trial or giving a blood sample, completing a questionnaire, or even taking part in a focus group. Involving people with Crohn’s and Colitis at every stage of a study makes for better research, better results, and increased likelihood of improving lives and finding a cure.
