The target audience for this event will be comprised of both primary care providers and sub-specialists. While there will be some overlap, specific segments of the talks will be geared toward each. Primary care providers will learn how to recognize the signs and symptoms of IBD, initiate a workup, and refer to gastroenterologists when appropriate. Gastroenterologists will learn how to utilize the newest endoscopic, imaging and laboratory tests. They will also learn indications, costs, efficacy, and safety of the newest medical and surgical treatments.
