It's All About Your Experience

Another successful DDW 2024 has come to a close, and we hope your experience was as rewarding as possible. While each of us may have followed our own path during the meeting, we came together — in person or online — to explore the latest science, discover new innovations, and shape the future of digestive disease care.

Thank you for being a part of this shared experience and the common goal of better outcomes for people living with digestive diseases.
