DDW® 2024 Celebrates World IBD Day

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) continues to be one of the hottest topics at Digestive Disease Week® (DDW). This year, World IBD Day — Sunday, May 19 — falls during the meeting, giving us another reason to celebrate the best IBD research and unite with patients worldwide in their fight against IBD.

See what programming and activities are planned for the day and share your photos online using the hashtags #DDW2024 and #WorldIBDDay2024. Please use the DDW Mobile App for the most up-to-date times and locations of these and other DDW events.

DDW Tracks

Create a self-curated program that lets you follow your own path — choose content tailored to your individual interests and roles. All IBD-related scientific sessions, posters and ePosters will be tagged to the DDW Inflammatory Bowel Diseases Track, so you can easily identify the education you’re interested in. Start your schedule by filtering by this track in the DDW Mobile App.
