DDW: The latest and most thought-provoking research in GI
Date:3/19/2013

This year's Digestive Disease Week program in Orlando, Fla., will feature the latest and most thought-provoking research in the areas of gastroenterology, hepatology, endoscopy and gastrointestinal surgery.

The four societies that jointly sponsor DDW (American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases, the American Gastroenterological Association Institute, the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) and the Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract) will each be highlighting new advances in the fields through "must see" clinical research, topic-specific panel discussions and debate-style presentations on controversial research areas.

This year's meeting will be held May 18-21, 2013, and new additions to the program include:

  • Breakfast or Lunch with the Experts: scholarly, dynamic discussion in an informal, small-group atmosphere. Choose from morning or afternoon sessions.

  • Poster Tours: subject matter experts from each DDW society will help you navigate the poster hall by leading tours of the most significant research presented in 12 topic areas.

  • AGA/ASGE Presidential Plenary Session: the two societies will present the most novel and innovative research in gastroenterology and GI endoscopy at this collaborative session.

  • DDW Live: Can't travel to Orlando this year? You can still watch selected DDW sessions streamed live online.

A press program featuring abstracts on innovation, pediatrics, nutrition and lifestyle, health-care cost, colon cancer and liver research will be announced soon. As the largest international gathering of physicians, researches and academics in the fields, the meeting showcases more than 5,000 abstracts and hundreds of lectures on the latest advances in GI research, medicine and technology. A listing of sessions is available in the Preliminary Program (http://www.ddw.org/program/preliminary-program).
