It is an honor to be recognized by the ASGE as the Industry Service Award recipient. I am very fortunate to work in the specialty of Gastroenterology and with industry professionals for close to 30 years. It has been a wonderful and rewarding experience. The relationships and friendships established along the way are invaluable and will last a lifetime. I have become enamored by the specialty of Gastroenterology, its healthcare professionals and industry partners. Overall great individuals coming together for the greater good within the specialty and patient care. What a great opportunity I have been granted.
For some time now I have been committed to supporting the fight against colorectal cancer. Braintree’s (Braintree - A Part of Sebela Pharmaceuticals) commitment has been and continues to be to provide the best possible products to aid healthcare professionals in screening their patient population. Over the years, I have had the privilege to work on projects which have changed the landscape of Gastroenterology. I plan to continue supporting campaigns to forward the cause for increased patient screening and the overall education within the specialty. Thank you for this honor and recognition.
