The New Gastroenterologist goes digital


Beginning in February 2018, The New Gastroenterologist (TNG) – a supplement to GI & Hepatology News that addresses issues pertinent to trainees and early-career GIs – will switch to a primarily digital format. We are excited about this change and confident that it will allow for a more effective and widespread dissemination of content that is valuable to both AGA members and our readership more broadly.

In TNG’s new format, current and future readers will receive each issue via a quarterly e-newsletter and all full articles will be available on the GI & Hepatology News website ( Moreover, we are excited to debut “In Focus: Brought to You by The New Gastroenterologist” in the February print issue of GI & Hepatology News. This section will feature expert-authored updates on pertinent topics in the field. The first of these will be a practical overview of the management of constipation by Nitin K. Ahuja, MD, MS, and James C. Reynolds, MD, AGAF (University of Pennsylvania). And be sure to watch out for subsequent In Focus features in the May, August, and November issues of GI & Hepatology News.
