Introduction: Dispatches from the GUILD Conference 2022

Read Article

Welcome to the Sixth annual Dispatches from GUILD series. The Gastrointestinal Updates-Inflammatory Bowel Disease Liver Disease (GUILD) Conference is an annual CME conference held in Maui, Hawaii every February (GUILD 2022: February 20-23). We were delighted to offer a hybrid meeting with over 200 health care providers attending live. GUILD again provided cutting edge updates in gastroenterology by world class speakers. Our topics this year included 2 days of IBD updates, a day of hepatology and a day devoted to common outpatient disorders. We understand that trainees are our future. Ten Gastroenterology fellows were selected to attend the meeting and receive daily mentoring and networking from our star faculty. GUILD also recognizes the role played by nurse practitioners and physician assistants in the care of IBD and Liver patients and introduced a boot camp in 2019, awarding 10 scholarships to APPs to attend the meeting.

To share our learning with the gastroenterology community at large, we are happy to continue our series beginning with the following article, “Managing Perianal Fistula”.

We look forward to providing informative and educational articles covering IBD, Hepatology and special topics in GI in Practical Gastroenterology over the following months. We look forward to seeing you all in person for GUILD 2023 in Maui February 18-22.
