Adults with EoE - 17 August 2021

Adults with EoE

Join us on 17 August for an information session to assist adults with EoE. Listen to experts and have your questions answered.

Eosinophilic Oesophagitis (EoE) is an allergic condition affecting the oesophagus, the tube that connects the mouth to the stomach. In EoE, allergy cells (called eosinophils) cause the lining of the oesophagus to become inflamed and swollen. EoE is estimated to affect around 1 in 1000 people (children and adults) and appears to be becoming more common.

Join leading experts - Dr Pete Smith, Dr Hamish Philpott and Amanda Jackson - as they share information to help adults understand and manage their EoE.

There will be an opportunity to ask the panellists questions. The webinar will be recorded and put on our website after the event.
