The world’s leading congress on intestinal failure, rehabilitation and transplantation management is set to take place in Auckland next week.
The 17th Congress of the Intestinal Rehabilitation & Transplant Association (CIRTA) is being held at Auckland’s Cordis Hotel from 30 June – 2 July, bringing together international experts and researchers to discuss the challenges in managing intestinal failure.
Auckland Convention Bureau (ACB) worked with Dr Helen Evans, Head of Paediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Starship Children’s Hospital in Auckland to secure the rights to host the congress here. Tourism New Zealand also provided support for the bid.
An expert in the field of intestinal failure and transplant in Australasia, Dr Evans championed the creation of the National Intestinal Failure and Rehabilitation Service in New Zealand, which opened in 2015.
