Welcome to the third annual Dispatches from GUILD series! The GastrointestinalUpdates-Inflammatory Bowel Disease- Liver Disease (GUILD) Conference is an annual CME conference held in Maui, Hawaii every February (GUILD 2019: February 17-20). The intent of this meeting is to offer a cutting edge update by world class speakers in a setting conducive to Socratic learning and interaction with peers. Our topics this year include 2 days of IBD updates, a day of Hepatology and a day of advanced endoscopy, esophagus and pancreas. GUILD also recognizes the role played by nurse practitioners and physician assistants in the care of IBD patients and introduced an IBD boot camp in 2019 as well as mentoring and networking sessions. This is in addition to our established mentoring and research presentation by GI trainees.
To share our learning with the gastroenterology community at large, we are happy to continue our series beginning with the following article,“Eosinophilic Esophagitis: When to Suspect and Why to Treat with Proton Pump Inhibitors.”
We look forward to providing informative and educational articles covering IBD, Hepatology and special topics in GI in Practical Gastroenterology over the following months.
