1st Annual Thought Leaders in GI Motility Symposium - 2018

Wednesday, May 23, 2018

This conference has already taken place.

Hilton Garden Inn - Stony Brook, NH
1 Day Conference May 23rd, 2018
6.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit Hours


This educational activity aims to address the paucity of available information available to internists, nurse practitioners, medical PAs, surgeons, and general gastroenterologists to effectively manage gastrointestinal motility disorders. The topics that will be presented make up a large percentage of the common complaints medical professionals face and are also a cause of significant morbidity and mortality. There are often no consensus guidelines easily accessible or comprehensive enough for the non-motility trained practitioner. We aim with this conference to provide clinical pearls as well as updates on the latest diagnostic tools, therapeutic agents and research data available on a wide breadth of motility disorders. This will include the latest recommendations for diagnosis and treatment of common esophageal, gastric, small bowel and anorectal conditions, including but not limited to GERD, major esophageal motility disorders, gastroparesis, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, IBS, constipation and fecal incontinence.

To Register, please contact Beth Jaronczyk at (631) 444-2119 or send an email to: beth.jaronczyk@stonybrookmedicine.edu.
