There are numerous gastrointestinal cancers, from the colon to the liver, and each requires its own unique strategy when supporting patients. In AGA’s Digestive Diseases Self-Education Program’s (DDSEP® 9) chapter on Gastrointestinal Cancers by Barbara Jung, MD, AGAF, and Alexandra Thomas, PhD, learners will review:
- Risk factors.
- Clinical presentations of various GI cancers.
- Screening, surveillance and prevention strategies.
The features of hereditary gastrointestinal syndromes are also discussed.
Dr. Jung is the chair of the University of Washington’s Department of Medicine where she researches colorectal cancer, tumor genetics, and activin signaling and tumor progression. Dr. Thomas is a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Illinois at Chicago where she worked with Dr. Jung investigating the role of activin signaling in pancreatitis and other GI diseases.
Written by leading experts, DDSEP 9 is the industry’s premiere educational tool for staying current on GI developments.
