The Suzi and Scott Lustgarten Center for GI Motility at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) hosted its first-ever symposium, titled “Functional GI and Motility Disorders: A Comprehensive and Practical Approach to Management,” which was dedicated to physician motility education on May 3, 2019.
This full-day external course, specially tailored to gastroenterologists, gastrointestinal surgeons, primary care physicians, GI fellows, residents, physician assistants, clinical nurse specialists, radiologists, pathologists, dietitians and other healthcare professionals, provided an overview of the most common functional GI and motility disorders in the pediatric populations, and the current diagnostic and treatment practices related to their management.
The center welcomed more than 60 participants from as far as the State University of New York at Stony Brook, the University of Michigan, and Mount Washington Pediatric Hospital in Maryland. Local pediatric hospitals, including Penn State Children’s Hospital, Jefferson Health and the Nemours/Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children, also participated. Many guests have shared their positive feedback on the day.
This event is just one more example of our dedication to lead the charge in educating the next generation of GI motility specialists.
