    The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) is now accepting abstracts for its upcoming Pediatric Growth and Skeletal Health Workshop, which will be held November 11-12, 2011, in New York City, USA.

    Fellows and junior faculty are invited to submit abstracts highlighting data of relevance to growth and skeletal complications of the inflammatory bowel diseases, Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.  Selected applicants will be invited to present a poster at the workshop, and the CCFA will support travel, hotel and meeting-related cost for up to 10 top-ranked candidates. 

    If interested, please submit a one page abstract of your poster presentation, your curriculum vitae, a brief statement regarding how this meeting will advance your work, and a brief letter of recommendation from your mentor.  These materials should be forwarded in a single electronic file to Marjorie Merrick, Vice President of Research and Scientific Programs (mmerrick@ccfa.org) no later than August 15, 2011.
