Carly Medosch has been living with Crohn's disease for 20 years and with fibromyalgia for one year. She spent many years too sick to do much beyond essentials. Now, still not in remission, she has earned a BFA in graphic design and MBA, run a local IBD support group, managed a Facebook group, curated sickhacks.tumblr.com, and written about chronic illness at blog.chronicarly.com. Carly is passionate about breaking down silos between patient communities so we can share knowledge, support and increase our advocacy power. Based in Washington, DC, she is excited to expand my opportunities to advocate and partner with health care professionals and designers.
