Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I am thrilled to welcome you to our 28th CGA-IGC Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA, on November 14 – 16th, 2024

The CGA-IGC Annual Meeting is the preeminent meeting for genetic counselors, physicians, scientists, advanced practice providers, trainees, and others involved in the diagnosis, treatment, and care of individuals with hereditary gastrointestinal cancer predisposition syndromes.

Our meeting will feature unmatched scientific content including the latest innovations and breakthroughs in the clinical care and management of hereditary gastrointestinal cancer predisposition syndromes, which will be delivered from experts from around the world.  We will also feature cutting edge research through multiple oral abstract plenary sessions and poster sessions.   Additionally, we will continue to support networking for all of our members, including a specific focus on supporting trainees and early career professionals in the field.

I am excited to bring this year’s CGA-IGC Annual Meeting back to the East Coast, to Philadelphia.  Not only is Philadelphia my hometown, but it is a fantastic city with a myriad of historical sites, outstanding restaurants, and cultural icons, that I hope you will be able to explore when here.

I am looking forward to welcoming you to Philadelphia in the Fall of 2024 for another outstanding CGA-IGC Annual Meeting.

On behalf of the CGA-IGC Meeting Planning Committee,

Bryson Katona, MD, PhD

CGA-IGC President & Chair of the Meeting Planning Committee
