I attended ACG 2018 to represent my company whose mission is to make colonoscopy easier, safer, and more effective . I am also the daughter of a Stage IV colon cancer survivor and watched as my father underwent chemo, numerous surgeries, and immeasurable mental and physical stress. Both professionally and personally, promoting colonoscopy is high on my priority list. It is through these lenses that I experienced the conference.
Sure you can plan for and participate in American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) 2018 by printing out and marking up the program, but why not make it easier on yourself? The ACG 2018 Meeting app is included in your registration fees. Once you register for the conference, you will receive an email with your login information and instructions for accessing the app. If you don’t get this email or if you have questions, you can contact tech support, and they will promptly help you out (I speak from experience). Before or after the meeting, you can call 877-426‐6323, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. During the conference, you can visit a help desk in the registration area to address any issues you might have.
A mainstay U.S. gastroenterology event is set to take place October 5 through 10 in Philadelphia, PA: the ACG Annual Scientific Meeting & Postgraduate Course. The agenda is jam-packed with worthwhile lectures, poster presentations, hands-on workshops, plus an exhibition hall full hundreds of vendors. The choices can be overwhelming, ranging from a roundtable discussion on how to get published to a lunch session on the endoscopic treatment of patients with pancreatobiliary cancers.
For those interested in educational and networking opportunities specific to colonoscopy and colorectal cancer (CRC), the sample agenda below should come in handy.
