NEW PRESENTERS, NEW CONTENT, A NEW YEAR

Orlando, Florida, November 9-11

The management of IBD is rapidly evolving. In terms of practice guidelines, choice of therapy, and diagnostic and surgical techniques, never before have so many options been available for use in clinical practice. As such, healthcare professionals like yourself need opportunities to learn about, reinforce, and share their experiences with the latest, most important, and clinically-relevant data and practices that directly impact patient care.

Held on November 9-11, 2017 in Orlando, Florida, the 2017 Advances in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases is designed to be the premiere event that meets the growing educational needs of healthcare professionals and researchers who study and manage patients with inflammatory bowel diseases.

Over the course of three intensive days, clinicians will gain practice-changing knowledge which can be implemented immediately, researchers will stay abreast of the evolving scientific landscape, nurses and allied healthcare providers will develop and share best practices in multidisciplinary care, and surgeons will observe and gain insight into the latest advances and techniques.

From education to networking, AIBD 2017 provides everything you need to improve the care of your patients and advance your career in the field.
