SOGHIN PH 2021

Society For Gastroenterlogy And Hepatology In Nigeria

Conference Message

The past year witnessed uncertainties and program cancellations, so with thrill and optimism, we in the Local Organizing Committee announce 26th -30th July 2021 as the date for Society for Gastroenterology and Hepatology in Nigeria SOGHIN annual scientific conference. 

This year’s scientific conference will be a hybrid meeting with multiple virtual sessions on interesting topics in Gastroenterology and Hepatology. Combined physical and virtual sessions are planned from the Port Harcourt venue of the pre-conference workshop; this a traditional opportunity to develop hands-on skills among budding and older gastrointestinal practitioners. The physical sessions will be subject to all COVID 19 safety protocols.

Packed with a highly experienced team of national and international faculty, SOGHIN 2021 PH conference promises to be an innovative and exciting educating experience for all. 

Kindly register early and submit your abstracts for presentation.

Stay safe!
