Navigating the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Pipeline: The Horizon is Bright

Hyatt Regency Chicago
Regency Ballroom A & B
Chicago, Illinois

Outcomes for patients with IBD have been steadily enhanced over the past decade due to the evolution of therapeutic and management strategies that target pathologic abnormalities. As standard of care and novel strategies for the management of these diseases are further investigated and refined, it is essential that healthcare professionals who care for these patients are provided with guidance for the successful integration of these potentially paradigm-changing advances into clinical practice.

The Navigating the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Pipeline: The Horizon is Bright symposium is designed to provide partipants with an enhanced ability to evaluate and successfully integrate optimal therapeutic and management strategies into everyday clinical practice for the advancement of clinical outcomes in these patient populations.
