Your private tour of the Crohn’s & Colitis Congress Poster Hall

The inaugural Crohn’s & Colitis Congress™ (Jan. 18-20, 2018, Las Vegas, Nevada) gathered more than 1,250 inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) health care professionals and featured more than 250 abstracts — with the goal of advancing research and transforming the care of IBD patients.

The Crohn’s & Colitis Congress is a new partnership between the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation and AGA. Both organizations are proud of the success of the inaugural meeting and would like to thank all faculty and attendees. If you are involved in the research or care of IBD patients, save the date for the 2019 meeting: Feb. 7-9 in Las Vegas.

Here’s a glimpse of the science presented at the meeting. Edward V. Loftus Jr., MD, AGAF, an IBD expert and presenter at the Congress, took over AGA’s Twitter handle during the meeting to take us on a tour of the poster hall, selecting six noteworthy studies to share. You can review all abstracts presented at the Crohn’s & Colitis Congress in AGA’s journal Gastroenterology.
