Programme for the 6th World Congress

We are delighted to announce the official dates for the 6th World Congress of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, which starts on Wednesday, 3 June 2020 and ends on Saturday, 6 June 2020. As this will be a joined meeting between ESPGHAN and FISPGHAN, an even wider range of topics will be covered. In addition to State of the Art and Key Note Lectures from world leading experts in gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition, topics will cover clinical practice in low income countries as well as updates from major stakeholders involved in paediatric health and disease. As in previous years, parallel sessions will consist of diverse and stimulating symposia and oral abstract presentations. The meeting will also offer an Endoscopy Learning Zone for hands-on training. A combination of posters and selected e-posters will provide attendees from around the world with the opportunity to view and discuss latest results. An overview about the Scientific Programme can be found here.

The Wednesday before the main meeting will host  three parallel full day courses: a clinical course in paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, an advanced course on Inflammatory Bowel Diseases and a postgraduate course for Allied Health Professionals. As in previous years, these courses are specifically designed for all Health Care Professionals working with PGHAN. The courses are also an ideal opportunity to network and for bringing together a wealth of knowledge from  around the world.

In parallel to these courses there will be a full day of Working Group Meetings offering ESPGHAN Working Groups the opportunity to meet and discuss their work and research.
