ABOUT CGA

The Collaborative Group of the Americas on Inherited Colorectal Cancer (CGA-ICC) was established in 1995 to improve understanding of the basic science of inherited colorectal cancer and the clinical management of affected families. In 2018, the CGA-ICC moved to change their name to the Collaborative Group of the Americas on Inherited Gastrointestinal Cancer (CGA-IGC), to be more inclusive of inherited gastrointestinal cancers as a whole. The CGA-IGC focuses on families with rare forms of inherited colorectal cancer: familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), MUTYH-associated polyposis, Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, juvenile polyposis, other hamartomatous polyposis, serrated polyposis syndrome, and hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC)/Lynch syndrome.

IMPORTANT DATES

May

3rd Webinar in Inherited GI Cancer Series - Details to Come

"I like how small and tight knit this group seems to be. It really encourages collaboration and interesting discussions. I love how all of the lectures were pertinent to my role as a genetic counselor."

"Ability to interact with others working in this field. The topics this year were great, and very relevant. They covered the breadth from genetics, surgical management, and oncology which brought together a diverse group of attendees."

"The individual talks within each session were very complimentary. Every year we learn new things that change how we practice in the clinic. Topics are cutting edge with great data presented."
