I wasn't in that class, I had no idea that's why they moved it. I did go to a medication one, but it had a different lecturer. She covered the basics that anyone who would read this site would know. The genetics session was a waste of time too, but I liked the "Female Factor" class, the Integrative one and the part I caught of the extraintestinal session.
Like you, I didn't learn much the last time I went. I think it is all luck of the draw in who leads the sessions. Some people spend the whole time on what IBD is. Well, if we didn't know we wouldn't be there. The best sessions are the ones that jump into the new research. You can't tell from the brochure which one those will be.
