Boston a Natural Fit for 2016 AGA Tech Summit

Feb. 8, 2016

This is an ideal opportunity to get important updates on the digestive health world, including information on medtech successes in GI and metabolic diseases from 2015.

AGA is excited to hold the seventh annual Tech Summit in Boston, MA, one of the most recognized areas for tech and innovation. We've assembled prominent individuals in the physician, medtech and regulatory communities to lead attendees in a program that’s both informative and inspirational. 

This is an ideal opportunity to get important updates on the digestive health world, including information on medtech successes in GI and metabolic diseases from 2015. Attendees will also explore opportunities and challenges in personalized medicine, transplant technologies and transorifice surgery.

The conference, which will be held on March 31 & April 1, 2016 will also explore topics such as:

  • Obesity management and evolving trends.
  • Diagnostics in chronic diseases with IBD as a case study.
  • Getting a technology/medical device funded.
  • How the AGA Center for GI Innovation and Technology is fostering innovation in GI.

We hope to see you this spring in Boston for a truly unique experience.
