In support of the theme for World Digestive Health Day 2017 and to support Digestive Health Month, UEG will be hosting a Twitter Chat on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) on Tuesday, 30 May at 20:30 CET.
Charlie Lees, IBD expert and consultant gastroenterology at the Western General Hospital at the University of Edinburg, Scotland, will answer questions and engage in debate and discussion on the subject. Members of the public, healthcare professionals, UEG member societies and stakeholder organisations are invited to join in by posting their questions or comments before or during the chat by using the hashtag #IBDtalk.
The Twitter chat will also be conducted in partnership with the Young ECCO (European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation) Committee.
For World Digestive Health Day (29 May, 2017), this year’s theme will focus on IBD and look to provide simple messages for the general public in order to assist them in understanding how IBD affects one’s daily life.
