Program on Inflammatory Bowel Disease to be presented

Congregation Or Shalom will present a program on Inflammatory Bowel Disease at 3 p.m. April 3 at 205 Old Grassy Hill Road.
The symposium will run for about an hour, with time for questions from all of the attendees both during and following the talk, organizers said in a statement.
The program will be led by two local physicians from the division of Digestive Diseases at Yale, Dr. Ioannis Oikonomou and Dr. Judy Cho, the statement said.
Both physicians will discussg Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis; Oikonomou will speak about the symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of IBD, while Cho will discuss more about the ground breaking IBD research and studies that are currently underway at Yale, the statement said.
Also, both doctors will speak with the group about mechanisms for optimizing treatment and health.
Cho and Oikonomou will discuss treatment, advice, state of the art research, and answer any questions with regard to IBD, the statement said.
A “Q and A” session will be held following the conclusion of the talk, to address any questions still remain unanswered for the attendees.

Admission is free. Congregation Or Shalom is located at 205 Old Grassy Hill Road in Orange. For more information, call the office at 23-799-2341.
