About IBD

Jun 20, 2023

In this limited series, we'll explore how inequalities in the healthcare system affect people from diverse backgrounds who live with IBD.

Why is there a lack of people of diverse backgrounds who live with Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis represented in clinical trials? Why are there so many barriers for people of color in accessing IBD care?

Dr Aline Charabaty, Director of the IBD Center at Johns Hopkins Sibley Memorial Hospital and founder of Monday Night IBD on Twitter discusses the scope of inequalities in research and access to care in IBD. What's more: she offers solutions that can be used to address disparities.
