Registration now open for the Crohn’s & Colitis Congress


Registration for the Crohn’s & Colitis Congress,® the premier conference on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), is open. The Crohn’s & Colitis Congress, a partnership of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation and the American Gastroenterological Association, will take place Feb. 7-9, 2019, at the Bellagio, in Las Vegas.

Led by committee chair Brent Polk, MD, AGAF, and co-chairs Maria T. Abreu, MD, AGAF, and David T. Rubin, MD, AGAF, invited faculty include IBD thought-leaders in the fields of GI, research investigation, surgery, pediatrics, advanced practice, IBD nursing, diet and nutrition, mental health, radiology, and pathology.

The 2019 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, several pre-Congress workshops, taking place Feb. 7, will be available for selection.

There will also be plenty of social events and plenty of time to enjoy Las Vegas; including a Friday night Welcome Reception that should not be missed. It’s a great opportunity to network and celebrate.

Abstract submissions for basic, translational, and clinical research will be accepted beginning Aug. 1 and ending Oct. 24.
