Think you know all that there is to know about managing ulcerative colitis (UC)? Let’s find out! Join our expert faculty as they chat through a series of UC case studies, featuring patients who are diverse in age, race/ethnicity, treatment history, and disease stage. Our panelists will review clinical guidelines and highlight key real-world data -- as well as share their personal experiences -- to provide strategies for managing these challenging patients. The discussion will include a review of best practices for initial treatment selection and when (and how) to reassess and move on. Be sure to bring your audience questions and try to stump our panelists during the Q&A.
