8:00 PM-8:30 PM CT: Dinner & Registration
8:30 PM-10:00 PM CT: Call-a-Colleague™ Program
Dinner will be provided.
This program is intended for allergists/clinical immunologists, gastroenterologists, and other clinicians involved in the identification and management of patients with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE).
During this Call-a-Colleague™ program, specialists in allergy/immunology and eosinophilic gastrointestinal disease will discuss the disease burden, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and current management of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). Faculty will also present clinical trial evidence for emerging treatment options as well as considerations for patients with other atopic conditions. A unique feature of the program will be the “Call-a-Colleague” section where our specialists will elicit additional insight from their multidisciplinary team members, such as a dietitian, a psychologist, and a pediatric gastroenterologist. The clinicians will provide their expertise regarding the mental health burden among patients, the use of an elimination diet to resolve symptoms, and clinical issues pertaining to pediatric patients with EoE.
After completing this activity, participants will be better prepared to:
- Describe the pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying EoE development, with a focus on potential therapeutic targets
- Comprehensively assess pediatric and adult patients with suspected EoE to accelerate differential diagnoses and establish appropriate multidisciplinary care
- Compare the clinical profiles, available trial evidence, and drawbacks of current and emerging treatment strategies for EoE
- Longitudinally manage pediatric and adult patients with EoE based on symptoms, comorbidities, updated clinical guidelines, and therapeutic responses
- Communicate with patients, caregivers, and members of the multidisciplinary team to ensure continuity of care and promote shared clinical decision-making
