AGA is pleased to announce the search for two new social media editors to support its suite of high-impact publications Gastroenterology, Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CGH), Cellular and Molecular Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CMGH), and Techniques and Innovations in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (TIGE), as well as AGA’s newspaper GI & Hepatology News and the newspaper’s quarterly e-newsletter, The New Gastroenterologist.
Based on the applicants’ areas of expertise, one social media editor will focus on clinically relevant research and news and one will focus on basic-science-based coverage. Each editor will serve a three-year term from Mar. 1, 2020, to Feb. 28, 2023, and will receive an annual honorarium of $1,000.
Volunteers will be at the forefront of the latest advances in clinical or basic-science research — working with AGA staff to identify articles for social media dissemination, spark discussions in the community and gain valuable professional development by holding a position within AGA.
