GHAPP Third Annual Conference
"The 2019 GHAPP Second Annual Conference was a true success! With over 560 attendees from 46 states, we want to thank all of our attendees, supporters and sponsors for a great conference! We are looking forward to this year's conference."
As we prepare for the 3rd Annual GHAPP Conference, your health and safety are our top concern. Rest assured, GHAPP remains diligent in ensuring that the safety and security of our attendees, speakers and staff remains our top priority.
GHAPP will continue to place high importance on facilitating measures that will ensure optimal health and sanitary conditions for everyone onsite during the event.
Our onsite safety measures, include the following:
Social distancing will be strictly followed with a limited number of attendees on-site.
Attendees must wear a face covering during the event.
Attendees are required to be six feet apart at all times; the conference organizers have arranged seating accordingly to be in compliance with this mandate.
Hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout the meeting spaces.
Signage is being used throughout the meeting space and hotel as a reminder to wear a mask and maintain social distance.
Commonly touched surfaces, chairs, etc. will be cleaned and disinfected by staff as often as possible.
Check-in for the event will be socially distanced and managed by the conference organizers for a “touchless” process.
Buffets will be attended and served by attendants at The Red Rock to eliminate guest contact on serving utensils. Other meal functions will be separate boxed meals.

About the 2020 GHAPP Conference
The GHAPP conference is the only conference specifically designed by advanced practice providers (APPs) for the purpose of meeting the educational needs of APPs who specialize in the management of patients with GI disorders and chronic liver disease. APPs, also known as nurse practitioners and physician assistants, have become important members of the care team in today’s healthcare environment. With an aging U.S. population and the growing shortage of physicians, APPs play a key role in the health care and management of patients with chronic illnesses. Therefore, we are excited to launch the third annual GHAPP conference and are confident that it will surpass the success we had with the 2019 conference. We had over 560 registered attendees coming from all over the country for a two-day meeting filled with scientific information on the latest developments and important concepts in the multidisciplinary treatment of patients with GI disorders and chronic liver disease.
The objective of the 2020 GHAPP conference is to bring together APPs for an in-depth clinical update, to foster an interactive discussion on the latest developments, and to review important current concepts in the multidisciplinary treatment of patients with GI disorders and chronic liver disease. The conference will exclusively feature expert APP speakers and will offer a combined plenary and small-group learning environment to facilitate interaction between attendees and faculty on the most clinically relevant topics, including viral hepatitis, NASH, cirrhosis, and GI disorders: IBD, IBS, and OIC.
The conference will be co-chaired by the GHAPP directors who will develop the meeting agenda and will select the conference faculty. The faculty will be leading nurse practitioners and physician assistants from top GI and hepatology centers of expertise; they will assist in developing the educational content. The topics covered during the 2020 meeting will have a strong focus on hepatitis C, cirrhosis and its complications, inflammatory bowel disease, and functional GI and upper GI disorders, as these fields are rapidly evolving and new data is continuously being presented and published.
An unparalleled opportunity for professional development, interaction with leading experts in gastroenterology and hepatology, knowledge exchange, research presentations, and new clinical concepts
