On May 19, 2018 a conference entitled ‘Kids and IBD’ was organised in Nicosia and the Pediatric Medical Centre for Liver, Gastroenterology and Nutrition of the Makarios III Hospital, which operates in collaboration with Kings College Hospital. The newly recruited first Pediatric Gastroenterologist in Cyprus addressed the audience and an interesting and fruitful discussion followed, with the active participation of the audience.
The IBD patient association CYCCA also cooperated in a conference with the Cyprus League Against Rheumatism titled “Reumatic disease and IBD. Can they appear together?” Apart from the introductory speeches, the topic was presented and analysed by two distinguished Doctors, one Rheumatologist and one Gastroenterologist. Also three patients talked about their personal experiences with the two diseases, giving a valuable and different perspective.
