Thank you for your interest in the Dignity Health Cancer Institute of Greater Sacramento's Pathways in Cancer CE Symposium.

You have asked and we have delivered! Please join the Dignity Health Cancer Institute for an extensive conference covering many topics of gastrointestinal cancer. Calling all physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, and pharmacists on the gastroenterology, primary care, oncology, and medical staff teams to come spend the day with us. Each lecture will be followed by a Q&A and a panel discussion where the learners will have the opportunity to work in small groups for case-based discussions. The goal for the learner is to understand more about gastrointestinal cancers and confidently identify early, refer, and treat for optimal patient outcomes.
