The Florida Gastroenterologic Society's Annual Meeting is the leading event for GI professionals in the state of Florida. FGS is joined with members of the SGNA to enhance the full spectrum of individuals working in the gastroenterology field.

This program is designed to address those compelling and controversial areas in the care of patients with gastrointestinal disease. During this course, multiple topics will be covered include: dietary therapy in patients with eosinophilic esophagitis, emerging therapies in fatty liver disease, the future of therapeutic endoscopy, endoscopic resection of defiant/complex colon polyps, new liver transplant allocation system, and much more. The structure of the program includes a mix of didactic presentations delivered by expert faculty, interactive audience discussions as well as significant question and answer opportunities.

The 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 these illnesses.
