ImproveCareNow has officially endorsed the 2018 Crohn’s & Colitis Congress: A Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation and American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) Partnership.

The 2018 Crohn's & Colitis Congress™ is a comprehensive and collaborative meeting for IBD professionals. Pediatric IBD clinicians are invited to register to hear from leading IBD experts across various disciplines, including clinicians who focus on the treatment of pediatric IBD patients, as they answer the most challenging clinical and research questions. With this forward-thinking approach, you learn alongside other IBD professionals to form an all-inclusive care perspective from research through clinical care during all stages of the patient’s life.

As a pediatric IBD clinician, you will:

  • Learn optimal treatment algorithms for your pediatric IBD patient.
  • Take away practical information you can implement in your practice now.
  • Gain insight into research that’s leading to new pediatric IBD treatments on the horizon.

Join us at the Congress, where we'll work together to accelerate the pace of research, improve patient outcomes, and transform the care of patients with IBD.

Key Pediatric GI Speakers from the Congress and Pre-Congress Workshops include:

  • Marla Dubinsky, MD, Mount Sinai, Asymptomatic but Ongoing Inflammation—What Now and Does Age Matter?
  • Joel Rosh, MD, Atlantic Health System, AGA Guidelines: Takeaways for Pediatric IBD Care
  • Lee Denson, MD, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Biomarkers for Precision Medicine
  • Jeffrey Hyams, MD, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, What’s Next? Moving Past Anti-TNFs for Pediatric IBD
  • Michael Rosen, MD, MSCI, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center
  • Translational Advances in Pediatric IBD—How Will it Affect my Practice?

There is also a pre-Congress workshop that will address emerging concepts highly relevant to the clinical management of children and young adults with IBD. The workshop includes lectures with Q&A, case-based learning and abstract presentations. Register for Cutting-Edge Pediatric IBD here.
