The AFS 2020 Annual Meeting (Virtually) LIVE FROM ACROSS AMERICA!

The Annual Meeting schedule for this September 25th-26th WILL GO ON, though we won't all be gathering in San Francisco as we hoped. These unprecedented circumstances have challenged us all, and when life hands you lemons... you make delicious lemonade.

So we have started from scratch redesigning a conference to engage you - to help shape your society, share your collective experiences, challenge the experts and learn together from endoscopic and surgical cases.

Watch for more emails from AFS in the near future with details about our meeting. Let's all get excited for a collegial and educational experience that anyone with any interest in diseases of the foregut cannot miss. Looking forward to seeing all of you (virtually) this September!
