Party Like It’s 1969

It’s our birthday month! Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) 2019 is turning 50 this year. In 1969, four societies recognized as leaders in their fields — AASLD, AGA, ASGE and SSAT — joined forces to create the annual Digestive Disease Meeting, what we now know as DDW. Over the past 50 years, DDW has been the global leader in disseminating cutting-edge research, educating the scientific and clinical communities, promoting innovation, and connecting digestive disease professionals from all parts of the world.

We cordially invite all attendees to join us to celebrate the start of DDW 2019, and all we’ve accomplished since 1969, with friends, food and lively libations.
