Digestive Disease Week 2016 Highlights Dinner Program

Digestive Disease Week (DDW) 2016 Highlights , a continuing medical education dinner program, is being held Wednesday evening, June 22, 2016, at the Overland Park Sheraton Hotel in Overland Park, Kansas. It is sponsored by the University of Kansas School of Medicine and University of Kansas Medical Center Continuing Education and Professional Development.

For the past 15 years, DDW has been the best rated continuing medical education program in the Kansas City metro area. It is attended by more than 75 area gastroenterologists and endoscopists. Since many practicing physicians cannot attend DDW 2016 in Washington D.C., they look forward to receiving updates through this program.

The goal of DDW is to improve competence and practice performance in the diagnosis and management of common gastrointestinal disorders by providing cutting-edge information on guidelines and treatment strategies. All speakers will have attended DDW 2016 in Washington, D.C.  A brief synopsis of recent relevant issues in gastrointestinal diseases for clinical gastroenterologists will be covered. Each topic will include a presentation and discussion of 10 to 12 clinically important and seminal abstracts presented during DDW 2016 in Washington D.C., followed by an interactive question and answer session. Various types of GI diseases such as Crohn’s disease, Barrett’s esophagus, GI bleeding and pancreatic disease will be covered.

Dr. Prateek Sharma, M.D., professor of medicine and section chief at the University of Kansas School of Medicine, and practicing gastroenterologist at the Kansas City VA Medical Center, is the course director of this annual meeting.
