Advance Your Knowledge of Functional GI Disorders at DDW®

May 11, 2016

Find AGA and the Rome Foundation at DDW; we're working together to support physicians who treat patients with FGIDs.

If you treat patients with functional GI disorders, we want you to know that AGA and the Rome Foundation are working to advance education in this area through the release of the new Rome IV*. In addition to the special issue of AGA’s journal Gastroenterology that includes reviews on each chapter of Rome IV, AGA is also planning several special sessions at Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) highlighting this new resource.

Sunday, May 22, 10-11:30 a.m.
AGA and Rome Foundation are holding a committee-sponsored session during DDW titled The Launching of Rome IV: What’s New and Why? The session is chaired by Lin Chang, MD, AGAF, and Douglas A. Drossman, MD, AGAF, with presentations highlighting the changes in criteria and new educational concepts in Rome IV. Nicholas J. Talley, MD, PhD, AGAF, will present on functional GI disorders and Fermin Mearin, MD, will present on lower GI functional bowel disorders.

Sunday, May 22, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
DDW attendees can also register for a CME Satellite Symposium titled Irritable Bowel Syndrome: What’s New for Rome IV. This 1.5-hour live session, sponsored by Allergan, Ironwood Pharmaceuticals and Synergy Pharmaceuticals, offers CME credit. 

*Rome IV is now available for pre-order. You can also stop by the AGA booth (#4525) during DDW to order your copy. Get a free one-month subscription of Rome Online with any purchase of a book or online subscription valued at $50 or more. Use code "AGA" at checkout.
