“The program not only introduced Future Leaders Program members to the AGA inner circle and provided a deep insight into AGA governance, but also placed participants into meaningful, actionable projects that had the potential to generate real benefits for the AGA itself.”

David Levinthal, MD, PhD, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center


“I think I learned as much from the two outstanding faculty whom I mentored, Jennifer Weiss and Art Beyder, as they did from me!”

The program is designed for GIs who aspire to further develop their leadership skills with an eye toward serving in a key leadership position both within the field and AGA. Participation from experienced GIs is also critical to the program’s success. They are needed to serve as mentors and help develop the next generation of leaders. This is the opportunity to help drive AGA’s strategic plan and advance in the field.
