Our Posters as Presented at the DDW 2017
DDW is Digestive Disease Week, in the USA there was the opportunity to uncover the most recent advancements in the field of Gastroenterology, Endoscopy, Hepatology, Digestive System and Gastrointestinal Surgery.
DDW 2017 is one of the biggest events and organized annually. There were more than 14000 attendees and was held in Chicago, May 2017. At this years DDW, our team of Doctors presented the two medical papers and the abstracts as large posters, picked by the team @ DDW from 1000’s of applicants.
For me just searching using my name, and that of Sue Paul to see our names as Co-Authors was a real honor, as the two of us put the survey together, found the team of doctors from CEDAS, Center for Esophageal Diseases and Swallowing, at the UNC in the USA, allowing us to work with Dr. Dellon and his team, came up with the finished survey questions.

Next step, from this, comes two medical papers, to be written up by Dr. Dellon’s team and published later this year in a reviewed medical journal.
Sue Paul and I (Steve Wyles) are so proud at getting our idea to this point. We are just ordinary people, not Doctors, but look what we put together, the idea, the team of Drs. from one of the best research centers already looking into why Esophageal Atresia and Tracheoesophageal Fistula occurs at Birth.
The team from the UNC are from the Center for Esophageal Diseases and Swallowing.
We would like to thank all the Support Groups and Parents that took part, allowing the Drs. data to work with.
