Bellberry extends sincere congratulations to our Committee B Chair, Emeritus Professor James Toouli, on being awarded the 2019 Master of the World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO) Award in Istanbul recently.  This Award is in honour of Jim’s exceptional professional and personal contributions to the field of gastroenterology and its related disciplines, and especially his efforts in the less well-developed regions of the world and in service to the populations WGO is focussed on.

The Master of the WGO (MWGO) Award is the highest honour the WGO can bestow on a member and is granted only to those individuals who have provided outstanding dedication to the mission of the WGO and achieved distinction in such areas as scholarly research, teaching, service to WGO and the community at large.

This is a capstone career award and is given in conjunction with each World Congress of Gastroenterology.
