Prior to the symposium you will be sent an agenda, which will allow you to schedule your time around topics of interest for you. BONUS: you get a certificate at the end!!! We need perks like that.
These symposiums are such a great way for patients to become more educated about their conditions and hence better able to communicate with their care givers and then make decisions about their care. You can participate in a post-symposium evaluation. For example, in the prior symposium the Pouchitis session never mentioned diet/food, which I requested they do in future ones.
Stay well! Jan
