The 2018 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium will feature a wide array of multidisciplinary topics of international interest, covering cancers of the esophagus and stomach, pancreas, small bowel and hepatobiliary tract, and the colon, rectum and anus.
Session topics include "Global Perspectives on Surveillance, Risk Factors, and Management of Early Gastric Cancer," as well as the multimodality management of biliary cancers. Other topics include young onset colon cancer, and liquid biopsies.

Subspecialties that are represented on these panels include medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, interventional radiologist, endoscopists and nuclear medicine.
This year’s symposium will also include one Keynote Lecture on Saturday, on the topic of immunotherapy.
