Join your colleagues to network and explore professional opportunities at the Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) Diversity Reception. Co-hosted by AGA, AASLD, ASGE and SSAT, this special event on Sunday, May 3, at 5 p.m. celebrates diversity and promotes relationship-building among minorities in GI. You can also review select diversity-related posters and ask presenters questions to supplement your learning from the preceding symposium.

Attend the DDW Diversity Symposium directly before the reception:

Unique Patient Populations with GI Diseases Experiencing Barriers to Care
Sunday, May 3, 4 to 5 p.m.
McCormick Place, Room S100c

This year’s session, moderated by Matthew Walsh, MD, and Aline Charabaty, MD, will focus on patients with gastrointestinal diseases that are marginalized, or find specific challenges due to their disease and/or minority population in which they belong. By attending, you will:

  • Challenge your understanding of LGBT health concerns.
  • Realize the cultural barriers to health care and ways to overcome them.
  • Implement ways to improve your communication with diverse patient populations in everyday patient care.

The session and reception are included in the cost of DDW registration. Save at least $85 until March 18. Member trainees, students and medical residents receive complimentary registration during the early bird period.
