In consideration of the health and safety concerns related to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, the Southern California Society of Gastroenterology (SCSG) has made the difficult decision to host the 2020 SCSG GI and Liver Symposium as a virtual meeting.  While we had hoped to offer an in-person gathering, we have realized that convening in Laguna Beach will not be possible this year.


The 2020 SCSG GI and Liver Symposium will be held virtually on December 4-6, 2020. The combined symposium will feature an extra day of programming beginning on Friday December 4th. Consideration is also being given to extending the agenda on Saturday December 5, and Sunday 6 to include important GI topics as well. Additional detail including registration dates are to follow in the coming weeks.  We are pleased to announce that registration for the virtual 2020 SCSG GI and Liver Symposium will be free for all current SCSG Members.  Please click the button above to renew your membership for 2020.

The symposium provides a unique opportunity to receive a comprehensive update in chronic liver disease and gastrointestinal disorders from nationally renowned faculty. The educational lectures at this symposium focused on important advances presented at the annual American Association for the Study of Liver Disease (AASLD) Meeting and/or in recent publications. Attendees will also have the opportunity to interact with colleagues, our expert faculty members, and industry representatives on our virtual platform.


Please mark your calendar to virtually attend this exciting symposium. Complete conference and registration information will be sent in the upcoming weeks. For questions or inquiries, please contact the SCSG via email at
