She significantly increased visibility and awareness for the ACG, the College’s physician experts, the latest clinical science published in The American Journal of Gastroenterology; and for serious health issues such as colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease and disorders of the brain-gut axis, and groundbreaking science such as the role of fecal microbiota transplantation in treating serious GI conditions.
