Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) has become a magnet for gastroenterologists around the world and many of them come from Spanish-speaking countries. AGA incorporated, some years ago, the session “Lo mejor de la DDW en español” with the purpose of helping this international audience get the most out of these very busy four days.
“Lo mejor de la DDW en español” is a recap of the best abstracts presented during the meeting. AGA has selected presenters to review these abstracts and talk about their importance to the field. Five great experts in esophageal diseases (Marcelo Vela; MD), functional GI disorders (José M. Remes Troche; MD), celiac disease (Inés Pinto; MD), obesity (Andrés Acosta; MD) and the gut microbiome (Elena Verdú; MD) will discuss, in a single Spanish-language session, practical and useful information that can be applied to everyday practice.
Eduardo Gutierrez Galiana (president; Panamerican Organization of Gastroenterology – OPGE), and Edgardo Smecuol (president elect; Argentine Society of Gastroenterology) will chair this prominent and successful program, taking place Monday, May 20, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in room 26AB at the San Diego Convention Center.
