Join us in-person or online for IBD Boston 2021.

Please note that we have a limited number of in-person spaces that will be filled on a first come, first served basis. 

We are pleased to announce that the Boston IBD 2021 meeting will be a hybrid meeting in 2021. We will hold an in-person meeting at the Aloft Hotel in Boston (following all Federal, State and local guidelines to do so safely) while broadcasting the meeting simultaneously on a virtual platform. Attendees have a choice to attend in person or virtually.  

The goal of this hybrid conference is to initiate practice changes in gastroenterology practices in the diagnosis and management of patients with CD and UC so as to improve quality of life for these patients while prolonging clinical remission. This conference will provide support and enable participating clinicians to enhance their knowledge, competency, and performance in the areas of patient care, medical knowledge, and practice-based learning and improvement

 

What past attendees have said about the Boston IBD Meeting:

  • "Excellent conference! Case discussions were good."

  • "Wonderful and as always highly educational! Provides useful information we can apply to our practice daily."
