Southern California Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates – Region 7
This year’s SCSGNA Fall Conference was held October 17, 2015 in San Diego at the Scottish Rite Event Center. Thank you to all who attended, and for your patience and support! The conference was faced with audio challenges early on, but ended on a good note! Our many thanks to our outstanding speakers: Debbie DenBoer, Dr. Errol Korn, Mary Farwell, Dr. Samuel Ho, Patty Heckman, Dr. Dong Dao, and Dr. Mary Lee Krinsky. Our lunch session was provided by Imedex, led by Michele Rubin, Program Chair. Every attendee was given an iPad for use during the educational program on the Evolution of IBD. This year, our raffle fundraiser collected $635.00 for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation; SCSGNA will round out the donation and submit $650 to the organizaton.
