Would you like to work with me?

Hey there! I am Aaron and I have Crohn’s Disease and a rare bone condition called Avascular Necrosis. I have had both of my hips totally replaced at age 20 and 24 because the AVN crushed my joint and then my hip replacements failed. I now tell everyone I am the bionic man ;). I am also a graduate student working on a Master’s degree in Biology Research with Thesis where my project is studying the role of the gut microbiota in Inflammatory Bowel Disease and I plan to get my PhD so I can hopefully continue working in IBD research.

Back in 2010 after my diagnosis I started a Facebook page in hopes of meeting others with IBD and finding support. It turned into so much more than that where my Facebook page alone has over 22,000 members and a daily/weekly reach of 50-100K people or more. Because of this I have been able to become a voice for those with Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative colitis and other chronic illness patients with the main goal to help educate them about IBD and IBD Science and make a difference in their lives.

What can I offer? 

  • Public speaking
  • Consulting
  • Product reviews
  • Guest blog posts
  • Sponsored posts or Ads
  • Health and Science Writing

  • And much more!
