From May 19-21, 2019 ASBM exhibited at the DDW 2019 Conference held in San Diego, CA. DDW is the one of the largest gatherings of gastroenterologists in the world, boasting more than 14,000 attendees. The conference is hosted by the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA), an ASBM member. 2019 marks the conference’s fiftieth year.

ASBM exhibited in the Community Corner, reserved for non-profits and patient advocacy organizations. ASBM staff met with gastroenterologists from around the world, and discussed key biosimilar policy issues including naming, substitution policy, and interchangeability. ASBM’s booth also made one pagers available on these and other biosimilar issues.


Several ASBM members also exhibited, including the Global Colon Cancer Association (GCCA), the Colorectal Cancer Alliance (CCA), and Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC).
