Due to the continued risk to the SGNA community resulting from COVID-19, SGNA’s Board of Directors has decided to host the 48th Annual Course: A Virtual Experience May 22-25, 2021, with optional pre-meeting events May 21-22.
Please continue to check this page in the coming weeks for new information as it is available.
What will SGNA 48th Annual Course: A Virtual Experience be like?
During the time that we would have met in Pittsburgh, SGNA will offer a full line-up of sessions for virtual conference attendees. Much like our virtual event in fall 2020, there will be keynotes, educational sessions, a virtual exhibit hall, vendor programs and networking.
In the fall, nearly 1,200 GI nursing professionals and partner representatives came together for our first virtual experience. We will use lessons learned to enhance your experience, but can assure you the opportunities to gain relevant education and evidence-based best practices will be a prominent feature of this event as well.
Attendees will also be able to chat in real-time with other attendees, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and SGNA staff. In the virtual exhibit hall, attendees can learn about the latest innovations, products, services and resources. Games and prizes will be available to all attendees who participate in SGNA 48th Annual Course: A Virtual Experience.

Session recordings will be available to access at your leisure through the event platform for up to 30 days after the event.
