Crohn’s & Colitis Congress Offers Reporters Access to Leading IBD Research

The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation and the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) are partnering to co-sponsor the first-ever Crohn’s & Colitis Congress™, which will take place in Las Vegas in January 2018.

The Crohn’s & Colitis Congress is the premier conference for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) health-care professionals and researchers. It brings state-of-the-art comprehensive care together with the latest research to advance prevention, treatment and cures for IBD patients.

Where: Aria Hotel, Las Vegas

When: Jan. 18—20, 2018

Why: The Crohn’s & Colitis Congress will take a multidisciplinary, forward-thinking approach to presentation and learning in the IBD space. Congress will bring together practicing providers and leading investigators for a singular track meeting focused on multidisciplinary clinical, surgical, and research approaches. Sessions focus on a comprehensive, patient-centered approach to IBD care addressing the current realities and challenges in the disease space. The most advanced, cutting-edge research will be presented to assist the IBD community in providing the best quality of care to patients living with these diseases.

What

  • Pre-conference webinar: In December, the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation and AGA will provide a preview of data to be presented during the Congress with a panel of experts highlighting a sampling of exciting research being presented. A formal invitation with the date and registration information will follow.
  • Onsite access to experts: Leading GIs, surgeons, pediatricians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants, IBD nurses, dietitians, mental health professionals, radiologists and pathologists will be available to meet with reporters one-on-one.
