Dear Colleagues,

The 2010 Advances in IBD conference was an outstanding event! The conference continues to grow each year, as word of mouth attests that this meeting has become a “can’t miss” update for those who study and manage patients with inflammatory bowel diseases.

More than 1,400 gastroenterologists, pediatric specialists, clinical researchers, nurses, and other healthcare professionals with an interest in the treatment of patients with IBD participated in the scientific agenda! 50 national and international expert specialists offered more than 80 education presentations, and 218 abstracts were accepted for oral or poster presentation. Be sure to note the abstract poster award winners listed on the Abstracts section of this website. Congratulations to all!

Details about the 2011 meeting are currently being finalized, and we will post them here as soon as they are ready. In the meantime, mark your calendars for December 1-4, 2011 and check back on this site regularly for updated information.

We look forward to seeing you in Florida this December!
