Dear Colleague,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the Great Debates and Updates in Inflammatory Bowel Disease meeting occurring in New York, New York from March 16-17, 2012.

This exciting educational activity will focus on controversial areas in the management of patients with IBD, as nationally-recognized thought leaders take opposing sides on topics of interest to physicians and their patients. Using didactic presentations in conjunction with lively and instructive debates and case-based discussions, this two-day conference will give practicing clinicians a thorough analysis of all currently available and emerging data. Guided by an interactive format, Great Debates and Updates in Inflammatory Bowel Disease will not only provide a comprehensive overview of the most significant advances in the treatment of IBD, but will also leave attendees with valuable take home information.

Past participants have valued the scope and depth of the information on treatment management, clinical research, and disease biology presented, and have returned each year for the newest information. As IBD research and treatment are ever-evolving, this comprehensive focus on the multimodal management of IBD is sure to be a rewarding educational experience for all to share.

The unique and instructive format of Great Debates and Updates in Inflammatory Bowel Disease will keep you up to date in the field, and give you expert insight into the management of your patients with IBD. We hope to see you there!

Audience Participation... A Hands-On Experience

During the scientific sessions, speakers and the audience can exchange information through a "hands-on" computerized speaker-audience interaction system. With this state-of-the-art equipment, participants answer multiple choice questions, and within seconds, the answers are calculated and projected on a screen in tabular or graphic form for all to see. This system maximizes the ability for attendees from diverse disciplines to see differing opinions and compare consensus between the speakers and each other.
