About the 2022 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 fifth annual GHAPP conference and are confident that it will surpass the success we had with the 2021 conference. We had over 400 live attendees coming from all over the country and 200 virtual attendees 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.

Course Overview

The objective of the 2022 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 2021 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.
