Come for the latest CRC updates. Leave inspired. Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second deadliest cancer in the U.S. With March being National Colorectal Cancer (CRC) Awareness Month, it’s a great time to register for Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) 2023 so you can continue to advocating and working to reduce CRC rates. At DDW, you can get the details about the latest discoveries in CRC research, access important clinical updates, and connect with others who share your purpose and passion.
DDW offers education across every facet of the field, but It’s easy to find the topics you’re interested in. Look for the Colorectal Diseases DDW Track in attendee planning resources to find all CRC-related sessions, posters and ePosters. And make sure to register by March 15 to receive the early bird discount. Sponsoring society member trainees, students, residents and postdoctoral fellows receive complimentary registration through this date.
