2020 Crohn’s & Colitis Congress now open for registration

Join the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation and AGA next January in Austin, Texas for the premier conference on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). 

The Crohn’s & Colitis Congress combines the strengths of the nation’s leading IBD patient organization, the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, and the premier GI professional organization, AGA, to bring together IBD professionals, across all disciplines, to transform IBD care.

The 2020 Congress Committee Chair David T. Rubin, MD, AGAF, University of Chicago, and Co-Chair Uma Mahadevan, MD, AGAF, UCSF School of Medicine, lead a faculty that includes thought-leaders in the fields of GI, research investigation, surgery, pediatrics, advanced practice, IBD nursing, diet and nutrition, mental health, radiology and pathology.

The Congress’ agenda includes main sessions that will emphasize case studies and panel discussions. There will also be parallel sessions on basic and translational science for senior and junior investigators. In addition, opening breakout sessions, taking place Jan. 23, will be available for selection free of charge.

Attendees of the 2020 Congress will be able to meet with IBD leaders, discover different perspectives, leave with practical information they can immediately implement to take care of their next IBD patient and hear what’s on the horizon in potential treatment.

There will also be plenty of social events and plenty of time to build a strong network, including a Friday night Welcome Reception that should not be missed.

In addition, the 2020 Congress is taking place in Austin, Texas. The capital of Texas and the Live Music Capital of the World®, Austin is famous for its inspiring and enticing entertainment, culture, cuisine and outdoor settings. Make a week of it and enjoy all Austin has to offer.

Early bird registration ends Sept. 18. General abstract submissions for basic, translational and clinical research begin Aug. 28 and end Oct. 23. To learn more and register, visit
