Presented by the Jreissati Pancreatic Centre at Epworth

You are warmly invited to the inaugural GI for GPs Symposium 2023: a one-day event to expand your knowledge of gastrointestinal conditions, take in the stunning Levantine Hill Estate, and get to know other passionate GPs and specialists.  

Register early to receive a free bottle of Levantine Hill wine - only available for the first 100 registrations.

As a delegate, you will hear from leading specialists and researchers sharing current best practice across gastroenterology, upper GI surgery and oncology, including pancreatic cancer.

The program is GP-specific; it's comprehensive, fascinating, and designed to support you with diagnosing and managing acute and chronic GI conditions for a wide range of patients.
