The AFS Annual Meeting 2020 Will Now Be Held Sept 24-26 in San Francisco, CA!

We are pleased to announce that the AFS annual meeting 2020 will now be held Sept 24-26 at the Hilton Union Square in San Francisco, CA. Providing a collegial, multidisciplinary forum to increase knowledge and improve patient care is foremost in our mission. Holding an annual meeting is vital to our continuing our principle of collaboration with best faculty possible.

No other American society can offer such an in-depth look at foregut disease from multiple perspectives, and we invite you to come participate in September!

Recent concerns about COVID-19, a growing number of travel bans placed on both international and domestic providers, led the Board decision to cancel the intended March 19-21, 2020. This was the only viable option that would in good conscience preserve the health and safety of our attendees and patients.

We will continue with world-class lectures, live cases, and a finale of goofs, oddities, and disasters over drinks as planned.
