9th symposium

The 9th International Symposium on Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders took place April 8–10, 2011 at The Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The meeting was jointly sponsored by the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health Office of Continuing Professional Development in Medicine and Public Health, and the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD).

More than 325 persons from 23 countries attended, including clinicians, researchers, industry leaders, patient advocates, and government health regulators. Over the course of three days, experts in functional GI and motility disorders presented state-of-the-art information on a variety of related topics in plenary sessions, mini symposia, and small group workshops.

Interactive sessions and networking opportunities produced stimulating discussions, lively exchange of ideas, and collaborative opportunities.

“We’ve seen a vast improvement in the overall funding of research in the area of GI and functional disorders.

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.”
