Experts from the fields of medicine, surgery, psychology, radiology, physiology, pharmacology, and genetics will confer and exchange ideas to identify the direction, trends, and developments in the diagnosis and management of chronic pancreatitis that are needed to enhance clinical effectiveness, encourage adoption by healthcare providers, and engage patients in the best practice and cost-effective care.
This is the second chronic pancreatitis international symposium that Charleston has hosted and will repeat the successful formula of the 2014 Symposium that was held at Kiawah Island. Gathering from around the world those with interests in chronic pancreatitis in a welcoming venue gives all many opportunities to talk and listen not only during the lectures and discussion session but also during breakfast, breaks, and receptions. New insights and discoveries into the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of chronic pancreatitis offer new hope to patients and those who care for them, and shared information with friends and colleagues of all ages promises again to make CPS 2018 an event to remember.
CPS 2018 will be held in the historic city of Charleston, South Carolina, not only #1 in Travel and Leisure Magazine’s Annual World’s Best City destination on the planet, but a top ten culinary city in the United States which will afford ample opportunities for participants to meet and dine in a convivial spirit.
