Have you ever wanted to ask questions about gastro-intestinal cancer to an expert? This free event was created for anyone whose life has been touched by GI cancer; whether you are living with cancer, have a loved one who is, or would like to learn about lowering your risk of developing cancer.

Hosted by the Gastro-Intestinal Cancer Institute (GICI), the third annual Ask the Experts event offers a rare opportunity to hear doctors and patients discuss cancer from both perspectives. The expert panel features GI cancer specialists Professor Michael Findlay, Mr Arend Merrie, Mr Grant Beban, Clare Wall, the Director of Nutrition & Dietetics at the University of Auckland, and survivors who will discuss diagnosis, treatment and the experience of surviving GI cancer. The panellists will also cover the hope brought by medical research, and nutrition and lifestyle recommendations for lowering your risk of developing cancer. Guests will be encouraged to ask questions of the panel, in the expectation that all will leave armed with more information and hope.

Gastro-intestinal (GI) cancer is the name given to cancers of the digestive system, i.e. the oesophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver, gallbladder & bile ducts, and bowel. This group of cancers is collectively New Zealand's most common form of cancer, with nearly 5,000 diagnoses each year. Unfortunately, too many of us know someone who has been affected.

The Ask the Experts event is part of GICI's mission to raise awareness about gastro-intestinal cancer and fund clinical research in New Zealand.
