    This year the College offers a series of pre-recorded virtual press briefings which feature the insights of leading gastroenterology experts on several key abstracts that will be unveiled at ACG 2014 in the areas related to hepatitis C, inflammatory bowel disease, drug induced liver injury, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, fecal microbiota transplantation and C. difficile. Notable case reports related to protein shakes, chia seeds, and other supplementation where good health intentions go bad are also featured. In these briefings, ACG experts offer their perspectives on the significance of the findings in relation to the larger issues surrounding these GI-related topics as well as tips for clinicians and patients.
