The University of Arizona Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, UA College of Medicine – Tucson and Banner – University Medical Center Tucson are pleased to announce the inaugural Southwest Regional Advances in Digestive Diseases 2019; The Best of DDW.  

We have noted that there are few ongoing Gastroenterology CME programs in the Southwest region of the United States to enable community based physicians and other providers to learn the latest developments in gastroenterology and hepatology without taking time from their busy practices to attend national meetings.

To remedy this situation, the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology in the UA Department of Medicine and Banner UMC -Tucson will be offering a half-day educational conference Sept. 7, 2019, entitled Southwest  Regional Advances in Digestive Diseases 2019: The Best of DDW at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort.

The conference will be dedicated to the topics related to the latest advancement and rapidly changing treatments in digestive diseases.  Up to date knowledge of both medical and surgical options is important for the best patient care. The event will consist of a series of lectures from 8:00 am to 12:30, centered around a 25 minute break to visit the exhibitor area, followed by lunch at the resort.

For information about the conference, registration, lodgings and the program, which includes continuing medical education (CME) credits valued at 4.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™
