Functional gastrointestinal disorders have long been among the most common conditions diagnosed by gastroenterologists. A panel of three experts will discuss the current science and review best practices during Monday’s AGA Institute-Rome Foundation Lectureship, titled “Making Treatment Choices for Functional GI Disorders.”
Thanks to a new commitee structure, the AGA International Committee has been able to expand its global educational efforts at #DDW19. Read about the additional offerings at this year’s meeting from Gilaad Kaplan, MD, MPH, AGAF, and Linda Rabeneck, MD, MPH.
Avinash G. Ketwaroo, MD, walks through sessions designed to meet the unique needs of DDW® attendees in the early stages of their careers in gastrointestinal medicine.
In addition to sessions in English, DDW is including several sessions in Spanish and Chinese for our international attendees.
About 15,000 GI professionals attend DDW® each year and about half of those attendees come from outside the U.S.
With that in mind, AGA has organized several sessions for international attendees, including summary presentations from the recent United European Gastroenterology (UEG) Week, as well as sessions in Spanish and Mandarin.
