About

“I attend the course because it is the best course to update and refresh my knowledge of GI issues. This is my third year attending and each year I take home new information, and reinforce my existing knowledge.”

“Attending the course helped me gain a stronger foundation for the diagnosis and management of common GI conditions that I see in consultation.”

Funded by the Takeda Endowment in support of the James W. Freston Single Topic Conference.
