Leadership 101: put your own oxygen mask on first @DarwinConwell #AGAleads #AGAForward @AmerGastroAssn

— Dr Michelle T. Long (@DrMTLong) March 10, 2019

The inaugural Leadership Development Conference combined participants from three AGA programs for a weekend of networking, mentorship and mapping out goals and initiatives.

Attendees included the 2020 class of AGA Future Leaders and mentors, Women’s Leadership Conference participants, and mentors and scholars of the new AGA FORWARD Program, an NIH-funded initiative that supports underrepresented minority physicians and scientists.

The event coincided with International Women’s Day, giving Women’s Leadership Conference attendees the chance to celebrate their journeys and grow into leadership roles with other #WomenInGI.

Aline Charabaty Pishvaian, MD, shared some takeaways in the AGA Community forum about challenges women in GI face — a breakout discussion from the Women’s Leadership Conference.
