New Horizons GIST 2023


NEW HORIZONS GIST is the most important global annual conference for GIST patient advocates. At NEW HORIZONS GIST, patients from the global GIST patient community come together, can interact with top GIST experts, have access to state‐of‐the‐art medical and scientific information and can exchange best practice in patient advocacy among each other. The conference is a balanced symbiosis of medical content, advocacy topics and capacity building sessions. After more than 2 years living under the restrictions of the pandemic, we held the NEW HORIZONS GIST conference as a hybrid meeting in Dublin, Ireland - for the first time in conjunction with the SPAGN Annual Conference.
