For the first time, Women in Interventional Endoscopy (WIE) and Women in Gastroenterology Network Asia-Pacific (WIGNAP) will join forces to host the World Wonder Women in Gastroenterology session at Endo 2020 in Rio. This wonderful collaboration will bring together female gastroenterologists from various parts of the world to network, mentor, and share their experiences.

The 90-minute session will be power packed with presentations from the USA, South America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia-Pacific. Come join this incredible journey interacting with women in different work environments, dealing with similar issues, some more apparent than others. Hear how women across various continents and different sociocultural backgrounds try to overcome the same challenges. The world in the end is a very small place and a lot can be learned by sharing.

There will also be a surprise Brazilian celebrity guest Speaker!

Stay tuned for more and check for updates on the ENDO 2020 website or WEO facebook page.
