DDW is considered the largest and most prestigious meeting in the world for the GI professional. Every year it attracts more than 14,000 physicians, researchers and academics from around the world who desire to stay up-to-date in the field.
The meeting is the year's best opportunity to learn about the latest advances in gastroenterology, hepatology, endoscopy and gastrointestinal surgery, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of digestive disorders, and cutting-edge technological advances.
DDW is jointly sponsored by four societies: the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA); the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD); the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE); and the Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract (SSAT).
