2017 National Surgical Symposium

Dear Colleagues:

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the Kaiser Permanente General and Vascular Surgery/GI/IR National Symposium which will be held at the Grand Hyatt Resort & Spa situated on the beautiful island of Kauai (Hawaii). We have assembled a distinguished panel of internal and external experts in the fields of General and Vascular Surgery, Gastroenterology and Interventional Radiology to serve as faculty to share their knowledge and expertise with our attendees. This year's symposium will feature important clinical topics relevant to our daily practice to meet your educational needs. In addition to clinical education, the Symposium is also a great opportunity to connect with colleagues from around the KP program, and elsewhere. We hope that the collaborative opportunities are as rich as the clinical education.

The Grand Hyatt Resort & Spa Kauai is ideally located along the soothing white sands of Poipu, on Kauai’s sunny south shore. We have secured a block of guest rooms and encourage you to come for the education, but also to relax and rejuvenate in Kauai with family and friends. This is a family friendly resort with plenty to do when you are not in session. To book your room, you will be required to register first for the conference. On your confirmation you will receive the hotel link and information needed to book your sleeping room. Please note we have a special group discounted rate and rooms are on a first-come, first-serve basis so we highly recommend that you register today.

We look forward to seeing you in beautiful Hawaii... on the island of Kauai!
