Patients are often told to “eat what doesn’t hurt.” In 2019, we can do a better job at informing those with IBD about nutrition therapies that can optimize nutrition and reduce intestinal inflammation. This webinar will inform the participant about nutrition needs for those with IBD and will summarize the latest evidence supporting diet and complementary therapies in IBD.
