The 2020 Symposia will feature two 2-day educational conferences designed to meet the educational needs of all healthcare professionals who treat and manage patients with chronic liver and gastrointestinal conditions. These meetings will deliver a comprehensive educational update highlighting the most clinically relevant advances in gastroenterology/hepatology.

More than 450 healthcare professionals attend the symposia, which are held in June and in December. Attendees of the Symposia Series are mainly from the greater West Coast area and consist of physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurses from community practices.

The 2020 SCSG Symposia will be co-chaired by the course directors, who will assist in developing the meeting agendas and determining faculty for each symposium. Each symposium will follow a similar format and will consist of 16-18 faculty members per meeting. The topics covered during the 2020 series will have a strong focus on hepatitis C, cirrhosis and its complications, inflammatory bowel disease, functional GI, endoscopy related topics, and upper GI disorders, as these fields are rapidly evolving and new data is continuously presented and published. In addition to these topics, the course directors and the steering committee will define additional areas of high interest for community gastroenterologists.

Faculty for each meeting will consist primarily of experts who practice in the region and will also include a number of global experts. The structure of the meeting will consist of plenary lectures, panel discussions, and case-based discussions. In addition, practical topics, such as how to code and seek reimbursement under the Affordable Healthcare Act, will be offered.

The SCSG has designed a comprehensive and multi-tiered corporate sponsorship program which provides substantial benefits at every level. Our 2020 sponsorship opportunities include a Platinum Annual Corporate Support package along with packaged Gold, Silver, and Bronze sponsorship opportunities at our two symposia. The SCSG also offers unique opportunities including exhibits, the Poster Welcome Reception, the Hands-on Skills Workshop at the GI Symposium, Product Theaters, and more. All of these sponsorships are designed to enhance the quality of education available to attendees at the SCSG symposia.

The 2020 SCSG Symposia Series offers different levels of sponsorship to support the needs of the over 450 healthcare professionals who will attend the two annual SCSG Symposia.
