The ACG Auxiliary was founded in 1953 to promote the ACG families and support the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG). The Auxiliary offers tours, events and social activities during the ACG Annual Meeting and sponsors two awards of $1,000 each to outstanding abstract submissions each year at the Annual Meeting. By contributing $30 annually, you can participate in the tours at a discounted rate, attend the auxiliary member luncheon and help fund the abstract awards.
