The IBD community came together in Denver, Colorado last week for the annual Crohn’s & Colitis Congress®, a partnership of AGA and the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. Thanks to our engaged attendees and expert faculty, the meeting was a huge success! Attendees from all over the country learned about the newest updates in the field and participated in discussions to improve IBD patient care and research. Below are five of the top take-aways from the meeting, as seen on Twitter.
Save the date and join us next year: Jan 25-27, 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
