Join your colleagues at one of the fastest growing gastroenterology learning weekends in the country! Outstanding faculty in a collegial setting produce a conference that delivers the opportunity to learn, interact, and network with GI thought leaders and colleagues from around the nation.

This program is designed for gastroenterologists, gastroenterology trainees, primary care physicians, nurses, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners interested in the latest information on diagnostic GI and state-of-the-art treatment of GI illnesses.
Guests at the spacious and centrally-located Hilton New Orleans Riverside will enjoy stunning views of both the Mississippi River and the city.
