Announcements/News/Notes from the President
We were so excited to have such a strong turnout for the April 2013 meeting. The Fellows superbly illustrated their current research. Congratulations to Dr. Sindhura Bandi for winning the Alan Feinberg Research award. We look forward to seeing more great ideas coming forth from all of our new and graduating fellows. We want to thank Dr. J. Pablo Abonia from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital for doing such a wonderful job presenting his work with Eosinophilic Esophagitis. I also want to recognize all of you for your support as we transitioned as a society over my past three years in office. All of the new changes with the website, CME and staff would not have been possible without care from all of the members. Furthermore, I am grateful for this time as your president and am thrilled to welcome Yasmeen Bilimoria, MD as the incoming president. We are forging ahead with our plans for our next meeting on Sunday, October 6th. Until then…
