HI I posted this in both the UC and Crohn's site's....but you know what-I have an ostomy too so why not post here?
Is anyone going to the CCFA Educational Symposium in Chicago on March 29th?
I just signed up and I am looking forward to the sessions on new surgical techniques (Dr. Fichera), IBD Therapies for the Crohns Patient (Dr. Hanauer), Safety and Effectiveness of Medications (Dr. Sales), and To Eat or Not to Eat (Joan Kanute). There were 16 sessions to choose from and it was hard to pick out just 4! There are also session on UC and another on colon cancer too. I went to it last year, learned a ton, and it was great to meet people facing the same challenges.
There is also a great children’s program and teens program-
