The Wisconsin SGNA Spring Conference was held on April 21st, in our state capitol at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art.  The venue was really unique and took us out of the typical hotel setting and exposed us to some beautiful art!  The Education and Planning Committee (Lynn Miller, Margaret Hauser-Ullman, Mary Garcia, Amy Komp, and Sue Machones) provided a great educational program that earned attendees 6 contact hours. Presentations included the latest in caring for liver transplant patients, FODMAP diets, biosimilars, and what to do in those difficult situations in the GI endoscopy setting.
