AGA Partners with Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation for New Conference

With an MD from Eastern Virginia Medical School, Dr. Soloman Shah has spent nearly two decades as a gastrointestinal and internal medicine physician with Gastrointestinal Medical Associates in Reston, Virginia. In an effort to remain in contact with fellow colleagues across the country and learn about new treatments in GI medicine, Dr. Soloman Shah, MD, holds membership with the American Gastroenterological Association.

In a joint effort with the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, the American Gastroenterological Association will hold the inaugural Crohn’s and Colitis Congress next January in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will serve as the flagship meeting for all topics related to inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and serve as a convergence point for professionals in these fields to network with one another and keep up with current trends in treatment. 

The Crohn’s and Colitis Congress will focus on IBD topics that put the patient first, dealing with the challenges and hurdles that currently exist in this area of medicine, both clinically and socially. The conference will also serve as the confluence of the most innovative techniques in treatment and a platform for the most forward-thinking research.
