Mathews Selected as Future Leader of the American Gastroenterological Association

Simon Mathews, assistant professor in the Division of Gastroenterology, has been selected to participate in the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) Future Leaders Program. Simon joins 17 other early career physicians and scientists who were selected for this competitive program based on their current achievements, dedication to advancing the field and potential for future success.

“With the AGA Future Leaders Program, we are developing a healthy pipeline of future leaders who will guide AGA for years to come in its mission of empowering clinicians and researchers to improve digestive health,” said Darrell S. Pardi, MD, MSc, AGAF, co-program chair for the AGA Future Leaders Program. “We look forward to working with these rising stars and preparing them for continued success and achievements in gastroenterology.”

The AGA Future Leaders Program was created in 2015 to identify early career physicians and scientists who have the potential to make a significant impact on the specialty. The program provides a pathway within AGA for selected participants who seek opportunities to support the digestive disease profession, advance their careers, connect with potential mentors and develop the leadership skills necessary to serve AGA. During this 18-month long program, participants will receive leadership training and work closely with AGA mentors on projects linked to AGA’s Strategic Plan.
