How we’re combatting racism, health disparities


The AGA Equity Project advisory board has released a new commentary in Gastroenterology: “From Intention to Action: Operationalizing AGA Diversity Policy to Combat Racism and Health Disparities in Gastroenterology.”

The commentary provides a transparent self-examination of AGA’s recent racial and ethnic demographic data of its members, volunteer leaders, and staff compared with U.S. population data. It also assesses AGA’s previous initiatives focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion. It then looks ahead by detailing AGA’s plans to further operationalize the goals enumerated in the AGA Diversity Policy.
