The American Gastroenterological Association’s mission is “to empower clinicians and researchers to improve digestive health.” The organization was founded in 1897 and now includes over 16,000 members around the world to advance the research into and science behind gastroenterology.
The American Gastroenterological Association website features many resources for people interested in GI conditions. Tabs include guidelines for clinicians about various conditions, journals and publications, meetings and learning opportunities, news, and membership to join and get involved. There are sections about various GI-related issues and conditions with full pages of information and explanations.
