Circle of Light Society

The Circle of Light Society is a committed group of ASGE members and friends who support the ASGE Foundation annual fund with cumulative gifts of $1,000 or more between January 1 and December 31 each year.

Annual gifts from Circle of Light Society donors are critical in supporting:

  • Specialized training and clinical research that translates in to high quality care for your patients;
  • Tools to help you succeed in the business of practicing medicine;
  • Resources to educate your patients and the public about the important role of endoscopy in treating and preventing GI diseases; and
  • Advocacy on your behalf with legislative and regulatory policy makers
