“We are excited to announce the launch of our new CME IBS and IBD program this summer,” said Phil Talamo, president of PER®. “Gastrointestinal symptoms have such a huge effect on patients’ quality of life and social function, and our fast-paced symposium will provide gastroenterologists and primary care physicians vital insight and strategies on how to handle the types of cases that they often encounter in their own practices.”
The educational symposium will be co-chaired by renowned experts William D. Chey, M.D., professor of internal medicine, gastroenterology and nutrition sciences and director of the gastrointestinal physiology laboratory and the digestive disorders nutrition and lifestyle program at Michigan Medicine, and Bruce E.

The Medical Crossfire® on IBS and IBD is a one-day interactive, scientific webcast that will help physicians assess the wealth of emerging data in treating IBS and IBD, choose appropriate treatment based on patient characteristics and apply novel management strategies to improve patient care. Led by distinguished experts in the field, the symposium will focus on key clinical topics in the management of IBS, IBD and chronic idiopathic constipation, as well as provide a unique opportunity for clinicians to learn from and interact with leading expert faculty to increase clinical knowledge; apply new data to practice; and, ultimately, improve patient outcomes.
