Designed for healthcare professionals specializing in gastroenterology, hepatology, internal medicine, family medicine, general surgery, gynecology, and colorectal surgery, the 4th Annual Jefferson Women and Gastroenterology Health Symposium will examine the medical conditions that are unique to women, occur more frequently in women, or present differently in women. By utilizing emerging scientific and clinical evidence, experts will provide updated approaches to the diagnosis, management, and treatment of common gastrointestinal and liver disorders aimed to improve the care of female patients.

A compendium of topics for this symposium include the basics of IBD, integrative gastroenterology, PCOS-gut connection, functional esophageal disorders, Hepatitis C, and chronic constipation. To provide opportunities for interactive group feedback, case presentations are included.

This year’s keynote lecture, Advancing Women in Leadership: Insights Gained from the COVID-19 Pandemic, will cover barriers women in medicine have faced during the past two years and the measures that can make gender equity possible.
