The 6th International Symposium on Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders was hosted by IFFGD at The Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, WI on April 7–10, 2005. The biennial meeting was jointly sponsored by the Office of Continuing Medical Education, University of Wisconsin Medical School and the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD) in cooperation with the Functional Brain-Gut Research Group (FBG).

Nearly 400 persons from around the world attended representing a variety of health care disciplines. Over 80 experts in the field of functional GI disorders presented their work in general sessions, multiple symposia directed toward specialties, and mini-workshops.

The attendees included gastroenterologists, other medical physicians, nurses, physician assistants, lab technicians, and related allied health personnel, as well as representatives from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the pharmaceutical and medical device industry.

We just want to thank you for all of your efforts that you’ve done behind the scenes in order to make a difference in the lives of so many of our patients.”
