Author Insights from Newsworthy Abstracts
Nominated by the ACG Public Relations Committee, this group of abstracts features scientific findings that are innovative, newsworthy for the lay reader, relevant to those who suffer from common GI problems, and which represent a significant advancement in the diagnosis and treatment of GI diseases. The Committee aims to identify novel and thought-provoking abstracts which reinforce key public health messages, discuss emerging research that could inform and improve patient care (particularly for minority and at-risk populations), or which feature common GI problems in a new way.
