Recommendations for COVID-19 and Other Infectious Diseases

The American College of Gastroenterology endorses evidence-based public health measures designed to prevent and minimize the spread of infectious diseases. To support safely and responsibly convening at ACG’s educational programs, the College strongly encourages all in-person attendees at its meetings to follow national and local public health recommendations. While the College has convened meetings safely in the current environment, ACG cannot guarantee that an attendee will not be exposed to infectious diseases. Anyone experiencing symptoms should refrain from in-person attendance and instead participate in those programs available through virtual access. ACG will continue to monitor the situation and make necessary and appropriate adjustments.

Course Description:

ACG’S 2024 IBD School and the ACG Eastern Regional Postgraduate Course are Designed to Meet the Needs of the GI Team.

Bring your entire practice and join colleagues at these two outstanding programs developed specifically for gastroenterologists, gastroenterology trainees, primary care physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, therapists, and other members of the GI patient care team interested in the latest information on hepatic disorders and diagnostic GI, and the state-of-the-art treatment of these illnesses.

ACG’s IBD School, to be held on Friday, June 7, is a day-long interactive program that features leading experts who will discuss the latest updates in IBD management. This program is designed to better enable clinical gastroenterologists and their advanced practice provider colleagues to diagnose and treat patients more efficiently.

Led by Course Directors Atoosa Rabiee, MD, FACG, and Manish Singla, MD, FACG, the Eastern Regional Postgraduate Course, offered on Saturday and Sunday, June 8-9, will focus on topics such as diseases of the upper and lower GI tract, GI bleeding, IBD, obesity, and liver. This program explores those areas which the gastroenterologist often faces in clinical practice, and addresses management updates in a variety of gastrointestinal and hepatic areas. During this course, multiple topics will be covered, including GERD, eosinophilic esophagitis, Barrett’s esophagus, achalasia, autoimmune liver diseases, hepatorenal syndrome, upper and lower GI bleeding, quality metrics for colonoscopy, polyposis syndromes, IBD, acute and chronic pancreatitis, H. pylori, celiac disease, IBS, and much more! The structure of the program includes a mix of didactic presentations delivered by expert faculty, breakout sessions, case presentations, and significant question and answer opportunities. Non-CME hands-on endoscopy sessions will be offered on Saturday afternoon.
