Highlights from the Crohn’s and Colitis Congress 2019

The “Nutritional Therapy for IBD” exhibit concluded another successful mission at the Crohn’s and Colitis Congress 2019 in Las Vegas. The unique exhibit was created by Kim Beall, Pharm.D., Sheri Pilley, CHC, Gisele Woodward MSW, and David Suskind, MD and is sponsored by the Woodward Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, with the goal to promote awareness for the role of nutrition in management of IBD. It was first introduced at the NASPGHAN 2018 conference (North American Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition), and was extremely well received, with hundreds of clinicians stopping by to learn about dietary therapy and pick up resources like flash drives loaded with data on nutrition in IBD, patient handouts on diet, and copies of the Nutrition in Immune Balance book, while sampling SCD food.

Kim Beall, a Doctor of Pharmacy, who is also an experienced user of SCD, shares selected conference highlights below related to diet and microbiome.
