Gastroenterology and GI Surgery
Expanded peds GI team joins national research network
Following a recent surge of faculty growth and program development in this rare specialty, in 2016 we joined the ImproveCareNow network. The nationwide organization of care centers unites clinicians, researchers and families to help care for kids with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Participating centers collect standardized data during clinic visits, monitor performance, compare outcomes, and share best evidence and tools.
