  3. I followed the Crohn's and Colitis Congress #CCCongress over the last several days. It's an annual medically oriented meeting with doctors, researchers, industry and patient advocates focused on Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). While IBD is medically different than IBS, many IBD patients have IBS-like symptoms between flares. Many of the treatment options that IBS patients use are just as relevant to an IBD patient.

  8. Free Webinar: Stop Suffering – Learn How to Talk to Your Doctor for Better Health Outcomes http://drossmangastroenterology.com/free-webinar-stop-suffering-learn-talk-doctor-better-health-outcomes/ One of the greatest problems that emerges with continually decreasing amounts of time that clinicians can spend with patients include the inability to: 1) obtain sufficient high quality information about the illness and 2) have quality time to establish an effective patient-provider relationship. This can result in inaccurate diagnoses and treatments as well as
