Continue your learning and discussions from Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month at the 2019 AGA Postgraduate Course. During general session six, Lower GI, two AGA Governing Board members will address themes in this area of patient care. They include:



Presentation time Title Presenter
10:50–11:08 a.m.  CRC Screening at Age 45 David A. Lieberman, MD, AGAF, AGA Institute president
11:10–11:28 a.m.  Universal Screening for Lynch Syndrome: Best Approaches for Implementation  Marcia R. Cruz-Correa, MD, PhD, AGAF, AGA Institute at-large councilor and AGA Postgraduate Course co-director


To help you deliver optimal care of patients when you go back to the examination room, a printed abstract book will be distributed to postgraduate course attendees this year. This piece will include:


    • Algorithms and take home points from presentations, and ample space for note-taking.


    • Exclusive content: each of the six general sessions will include printed summaries of journal studies relevant to the same focus areas. These summaries — written by the authors of the journal article — will highlight the clinical application of the study, including practical take-home points for use in the clinical care setting.



Save $75 on the cost to attend when you register by April 3.  

By attending this multi-topic course on May 18 and 19, 2019, you will learn about a variety of disease states while drawing on actual clinical examples. Details, including the full program agenda, are available online.  If you’re already registered for Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) 2019, you can add the AGA Postgraduate Course to your itinerary in the Registration Resource Center.
