DEAR COLLEAGUE,

The 2011 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 1,700 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 300 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!

Save the date for our 2012 conference: December 13-15, 2012 at the Westin Diplomat in Hollywood, FL. Details about the 2012 meeting are currently being finalized, and we will post them here as soon as they are ready. In the meantime follow us on Twitter (@IBDConference) and "like" us on Facebook for the latest updates.

We look forward to seeing you in Florida next year!

Sincerely,
Richard P. MacDermott, MD, MACG
