Digestive Disease Week® 2018 was one for the books. More than 14,000 GI professionals gathered in Washington, D.C., for the world’s premier GI meeting. The four-day conference featured 4,110 posters, 981 presentations by invited speakers and 1,100 oral abstracts.
Whether you have an evening free after DDW® sessions or you’re staying a couple extra days after the meeting, Washington, D.C., offers a variety of activities and capital sights to see this spring.
You probably learned in grade school that Washington, D.C., is home to the White House and runs along the Potomac River, but did you know the nation’s capital was built on a swamp?
In addition to being the nation’s political capital, Washington, D.C., is on its way to becoming the nation’s culinary capital. A world-renowned restaurant publication — the Michelin Red Guide — dished out two stars for two D.C. restaurants while honoring 11 restaurants with one-star accolades in 2018.
