Welcome to the Symposium - Edition of May 20, 2021

Dear colleagues,

Dear BIRD members,

Dear friends,

 

We are very delighted to introduce our second virtual BIRD symposium:

« Infections in IBD, not all about COVID-19. Prepare and prevent, don’t repair and repent. »

This past year we all have experienced the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and all of its consequences. Our IBD patients however, are still confronted with many other infectious threats. This symposium aims at updating our knowledge on preventing, recognizing and managing infections in our patients.

We will start with three state-of-the-art lectures, followed by an interactive case-based discussion in which we will analyse several challenging infectious cases.

Your participation and proactive involvement will help to make this live session as interactive as possible.

We are looking forward to welcome you all.

 

The organizing committee,


Dr. Anneline Cremer
Dr. Claire Liefferinckx
Dr. Annelies Verreth
Prof. Dr. Triana Lobaton
Prof. Dr. Jean-François Rahier
