Overview

The goal of the conference is to initiate practice changes in GI 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 meeting 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.

Why Boston?   Boston is the epitome (perfect blend/ combo/merger/mix/fusion) of the historical and the contemporary. Personal preferences for entertainment and interests are virtually endless - from historical trails and artifacts to fringe theatre, from inspirational architecture to dining on local fare, from the old masters to the new brew masters. Each season brings its own specialties and favorites enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
