2015 Digestive Disease Week Meeting Review

Brookfield, WI US
September 19, 2015

Digestive Diseases Week is the main annual event where new discoveries in the prevention, diagnosis and management of gastrointestinal, biliary, hepatic and pancreatic are presented. These presentations are cutting edge and precede presentation in journals. It is imperative that gastroenterologists and hepatologists be updated on the presentations that will have impact on the care they provide to patients with these various disorders.

The new knowledge is being requested by gastroenterologists who would provide this to their patients.

It is the goal of this conference to translate that knowledge into improved performance.
