What People Are Saying About The New IT&T
Colleen M. Schnitt, MD, MHS, FASGE
A hallmark of the ASGE mission is education. This is a hands-on society; our
members should have the opportunity to learn from the best teachers in this
field in a setting that provides a generous, hands-on approach married with the
wonderful didactic lectures that our members have come to expect. While our
current ITT has served the needs of the society well until this point,
technology, time, popularity, and the learning curve have outpaced the
opportunities ASGE can provide there. ASGE can continue to support our
practitioners' life-long learning goals of acquiring new skills and updating
standard skills in the management of gastrointestinal diseases through this new

one who has witnessed the innovation and evolution of endoscopy in the 20th
Century, I feel that the new ITT Center is our opportunity to leap forward in
the 21st Century and continue leading the way in innovation and teaching while
enabling our members to advance and remain up to date with the newest
developments in diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy." "The new IT&T center will
be instrumental in the state of the art endoscopic training of physicians
worldwide and it is an honor to be a part of it." "Endoscopic innovation and its
dissemination through careful tutelage to provide state-of the-art patient care
is the lifeblood of the ASGE. The IT&T Capital Campaign will allow the ASGE
to perform this mission by creating the world center of endoscopic research,
teaching and education."

"Endoscopic education is a key mission of the ASGE and a personal passion for many of us in teaching centers. I am committed to the "hands on" education of endoscopists and feel that my support of a new IT&T center is a perfect way to support that passion."
Patrick G. Quinn, MD, FASGE
"My reason for giving to help the IT&T campaign was a hope that we as a professional society can help develop new tools for teaching our current techniques to new GI doctors. I see this facility as a place where Gastroenterologists in practice can come to learn new techniques or brush up on older techniques.
This is a bold and exciting initiative aimed at improving our ability to care for patients, I think we need to invest now to allow ourselves the opportunity to be flexible in the future.
