Every September is Women in Medicine month, making it the perfect time to learn more about how to advance the careers of women working in gastroenterology and hepatology. ICYMI, take this time to go back and rewatch some sessions from Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) 2023 that cover this important topic!
If you attended DDW 2023, you have access to these sessions through DDW On Demand until May 17, 2024. If you couldn’t attend, you can still purchase access.
As a woman (and mom) in GI, it is inspiring to meet the international 🌍women who have paved the way with being the “first (Division Cheif, Director, PD…).” You are all so incredible. Thank you for all that you have done to make GI a more equitable place. @WomeninEndo #DDW2023

Gastroenterology Women’s Coalition (GWC) Women’s Leadership Program

Great meeting and Coalition, on which I was privileged to privilege serve as a young @SSAT leader. Let us continue to support women to be at the forefront of GI diseases! Major strength of @DDWMeeting is the opportunity for GI & surgeons to work together toward common goals.
