The Year in Review and a Look Ahead at 2019

It has been a great honor for me to serve as your president since DDW 2018. Each January, who among us doesn’t enjoy reflecting on successes of the past year, and laying interesting and exciting plans for the months ahead? As ASGE president, January marks the point a little more than halfway through my year in office. It’s a great time to connect with you, the members, to recap a few highlights from 2018 and outline some projects in the works for 2019 that will benefit you, your patients and the profession.

In my last message, I talked about re-focusing on several areas at ASGE: Member engagement; competency-based education; and mobile technology. We are keeping these areas of focus firmly in our sights for 2019. We also look forward to continued collaboration with the other GI societies as well as other organizations who share our mission.

Many thanks to all of the wonderful leaders, volunteers and donors within the organization, without whom none of these accomplishments and projects would be possible!
