The Bluegrass Gut Club is designed as an educational source for gastrointestinal (GI) professionals. Guest speakers, who are experts in their fields, are brought in from across the country to present on a variety of GI topics. All talks given are continuing medical education (CME)-accredited.

Both physicians and GI professionals from central Kentucky and surrounding areas are welcome to attend these free dinner presentations, which meet the third Thursday of the month from September through April (excluding December).
