The goal of the session is to create a network of women pursuing a career in Neurogastroenterology and Motility (NGM) and develop programs to overcome systemic barriers, capture new opportunities and grow leadership skills.

Hands-On Neurogastroenterology & Motility Procedures & Case Discussions

Adult • Pediatric •  light refreshments
An interactive, hands-on session with experts who will demonstrate equipment functionality. Vendors will display anorectal and esophageal manometry and pH impedance. Each vendor will pose 3 to 5 equipment-related questions. A raffle will be held and a prize will be awarded to the entry with the highest number of correct answers.

limited number of Travel Awards (Apply by April 22, 2024 to be considered) are available for registrants that qualify. Eligibility is noted on the registration form. (A new window will open for the Travel Award application on the Registration Form).

Course Overview:

This course is intended to increase participants’ knowledge of how to provide excellent clinical care and apply innovative approaches in the clinical management of motility and neurogastroenterology disorders. This meeting will provide attendees with an enhanced competency of the underlying mechanisms that govern common gastrointestinal motility disorders and disorders of gut-brain interaction and will provide a framework for developing a multidisciplinary plan for optimal diagnosis and treatment.  Discussions will encompass the relevant pathophysiology of these disorders as well as new findings from cutting-edge research in order to clarify matters of ongoing debate in the motility community and to improve knowledge of how application of emergent clinical innovations may influence patient outcomes. Through case-based presentations as well as a review of consensus opinions and available national/ANMS practice guidelines, attendees will gain greater confidence in areas including GERD, globus, gastroparesis, irritable bowel syndrome, dietary therapies, behavioral health, and innovative diagnostics and therapeutics.

Course Target Audience:

This program is intended for gastroenterologists in academic and clinical practice, gastroenterology fellows, nurses and nurse practitioners, physician assistants, dieticians, psychologists, technicians and medical assistants involved in adult and pediatric gastrointestinal motility testing, research, patient care, drug/device development, and other relevant stakeholders in the field of neurogastroenterology and motility.
