Cedars-Sinai has developed a new inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)-focused nutrition education program that teaches participants how to effectively develop and grow integrated IBD-focused nutrition services in various practice settings.
The 10-month program, Advanced Dietary IBD Education and Training (DIET) Program, will take place from September 2023 through July 2024, and includes two 2-day, in-person symposia at the beginning and end of the program. In between the symposia, participants will meet bi-weekly on Thursdays for three hours (8-11 a.m. PT) for virtual didactic and case-based learning sessions, research reviews and small group discussions.
All GI physicians, advanced practice providers and registered dietitians with a demonstrated clinical interest and expertise in IBD at their respective institutions are strongly encouraged to apply for one of 20 slots.
Program participants will be responsible for covering all travel and hotel costs associated with the two in-person symposia in Los Angeles. In addition, participants will be required to pay a $200 registration fee upon application acceptance to confirm their space. This fee will be used to defray costs for meals and continuing education credit.
Applications are due June 16 at 11:59 p.m. PT. Potential candidates will be notified in June and July, followed by virtual interviews and participant selection.
The educational activity is supported by a grant from the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust and is endorsed by the AGA Institute.
