Join Us for the Clinician’s Guide to Fecal Microbiota Transplant (FMT) Workshop

Aug. 1, 2017

Workshop will take place on Jan. 18, 2018, just prior to the new Crohn’s and Colitis Congress™ in Las Vegas, NV.

What is the next frontier for FMT? Join the AGA Center for Gut Microbiome Research and Education on Jan. 18, 2018, to discuss the past, present and future of FMT at the Clinician’s Guide to FMT Workshop. This new program will precede the new Crohn’s and Colitis Congress™, a partnership of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation and AGA.

The full-day event will cover the current state of the evidence for FMT including best practices, impact on the gut microbiome, regulatory considerations and the status of investigation to treat IBD and related conditions in adult and pediatric patients. The program will also discuss the FMT National Registry, a multi-disciplinary effort to track the long-term safety and efficacy of FMT, as well as the status of investigational products inspired by the gut microbiome.

Gastroenterologists and other health care professionals interested in FMT are encouraged to register. You must be registered for the Crohn's & Colitis Congress and pay an additional fee ($100 for members/$150 for non-members) to attend this workshop. To learn more about this workshop and other offerings at the Congress, please visit www.crohnscolitiscongress.org.
