Advances in Managing Eosinophilic Esophagitis : Tips for the Practicing Clinician 
APFED is excited to support the launch of the new webinar, Advances in Managing Eosinophilic Esophagitis: Tips for the Practicing Clinician developed by Tarsus Medical Education. Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is a chronic, debilitating disease for which there are few targeted treatment options. Additionally, diagnosis of EoE is often delayed and symptoms may be difficult to manage. Led by experts, Evan Dellon, MD, Marc Rothenberg, MD, and Kristle Lynch, MD, this webinar discusses the latest advances in this disease and provides practical strategies to address the persistent gaps in patient care. This activity is supported by an educational grant from Sanofi and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals and is jointly provided by PACE and Tarsus Medical Education. Learners can earn up to 0.5 CE credits upon completion.

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of gastroenterologists (pediatric and adult), allergists/immunologists (pediatric and adult), specialty NPs and PAs, and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with eosinophilic esophagitis.
