Alberta Society of Gastroenterology Awards

2018 ASG Awards: Call for Nominations

Each year at the Alberta Digestive Disease Summit, the Alberta Society of Gastroenterology celebrates three of its most outstanding members with a series of awards. We are currently gathering nominations for the 2018 Awards to recognize the achievements of the nominees and the impact they have had on the profession. We encourage you to submit nominations for those exceptional members who you believe best represent the qualities outlined in the award categories below:

The Alberta Society of Gastroenterology Distinguished Educator Award is presented to one ASG member who has made an oustanding contribution to education on a local, national, or international basis. The contribution may be in the areas of direct teaching, research in education, or development of educational programs. 

The Alberta Society of Gastroenterology Distinguished Researcher Award is presented to one ASG member who has made an outstanding contribution to research. 

Named for Dr. Richard Sherbaniuk and Dr. Noel Hershfield, leaders in Alberta's gastroenterology community, the Sherbaniuk/Hershfield Award for Distinguished Service is presented to one ASG member for outstanding contributions to the field of gastroenterology in Alberta. 

To nominate a deserving colleague, please contact us at ASG@buksa.com.
