In my time as president of the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN), I have truly come to believe that the key to advancing care begins with collaboration and education with clinicians and families.
I've worked with many talented pediatric GI specialists across the world to improve professional education among our colleagues. Together we've created webinars, professional CME materials and condition-specific guidelines for specialists covering a wide range of topics related to GI conditions. With continued support from NASPGHAN and the NASPGHAN Foundation, my colleagues and I have strived to encourage the creation of this ongoing education to improve not only professional development but ultimately the lives of hundreds of thousands of children.
With this in mind, I wanted to share with you two continuing medical education articles that I believe may be of interest:
I am honored to be a part of the NASPGHAN leadership community and hope my time as president has encouraged other GI specialists to invest in ongoing education for the advancement of our field.
