Dispatches from the GUILD Conference 2020

Welcome to the Fourth annual Dispatches from GUILD series! The Gastrointestinal Updates-Inflammatory Bowel DiseaseLiver Disease (GUILD) Conference is an annual CME conference held in Maui, Hawaii every February (GUILD 2020: February 16-19). This meeting offers a cutting edge update in gastroenterology by world class speakers in a setting conducive to learning and interaction with peers. Our topics this year include 2 days of IBD updates, a day of hepatology and a day of obesity related topics. 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. Scholarships are awarded to 10 NP/PA’s and 10 Gastroenterology fellows to attend the meeting and receive daily mentoring and networking.
To share our learning with the gastroenterology community at large, we are happy to continue our series beginning with the following article, “Prevention in Inflammatory Bowel Disease: An Updated Review”. We look forward to providing informative and educational articles covering IBD, Hepatology and special topics in GI in Practical Gastroenterology over the following months
