Rounding out our Study Voices panel for BBK's keynote “Do Engagement Tools Live Up to Their Hype?” is panelist, Annie Finstein. She is looking forward to sharing her experience as a patient and participant in a clinical research study on February 19 at the SCOPE conference.

After trying all available medications approved for pediatric patients at that time, she participated in a pediatric study at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Now in her late 20s, she enjoys spending time at the beach, hiking, cooking and gardening at her home in Boston. Annie is committed to making a difference and connects with other patients impacted by Crohn’s disease by running half marathons with Team Challenge, the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation’s endurance training and fundraising program.Annie_Finstein

What was most rewarding to you as a participant in a clinical research study?

It was most rewarding to know that I was helping advance the treatment of Crohn’s disease for pediatric patients, and that my participation might not only help me but also other kids suffering from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
