For many people, the new year is a fresh start. People hope to leave their troubles behind and find success in the new year ahead. While your average American lists “better health” as a new years resolution to be attained through a few more days at the gym and a few less indulgences, for patients, the path to better health can look a little different.
Patients facing many different diagnoses all find themselves on the hunt for the same thing- a treatment that works for them. Unfortunately for many conditions including IBD, arthritis, cancer, scleroderma, and more, a cure has yet to be found. Patients are left to use trial and error to find the best treatment option for their specific case.

The good news is that with each passing year, researchers are working hard to develop new treatment options, and ultimately hope to find cures and solutions to suit every patient’s needs. Many of these developing treatment options are available to patients through clinical trials. For the 5th installment of the #PatientsHavePower Twitter chat, we will take a look at some of the new solutions in the pipeline for patients, and reflect on struggles yet to be solved. We hope to inspire patients and families to strive for better health in the new year.
