AGA announces prestigious awards recognition recipients
Date:5/21/2012

San Diego, CA (May 21, 2012) Each year, the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) honors several individuals for their outstanding contributions and achievements in gastroenterology through its prestigious recognition awards.

"AGA recognition award recipients are individuals who have been nominated by their peers for achieving the highest level of esteem and confidence from their colleagues. These individuals are the leaders of our field and have made truly remarkable contributions to the AGA and society," said C. Richard Boland, MD, AGAF, president of the AGA Institute. "AGA is comprised of many distinguished and talented individuals who help make AGA an accomplished organization by their tremendous contributions to the field of gastroenterology."

The AGA congratulates the 2012 awardees and thanks them for their exemplary service to the field of gastroenterology.

Julius Friedenwald Medal

AGA's highest honor is awarded posthumously to Emmet B. Keeffe, MD, AGAF. The Julius Friedenwald Medal, presented annually since 1941, recognizes a physician for lifelong contributions to the field of gastroenterology. In giving this award to Dr. Keeffe, the AGA offers our thanks for his contributions to society and also to AGA. After years of volunteering for AGA in various capacities, he was our president in 2004 and ushered in an era of increased focus on strategic planning.

Emmet's brilliant career bridged general and transplant hepatology. He made significant contributions to our knowledge of antiviral therapy of chronic hepatitis, the use of hepatitis vaccines and liver transplant selection criteria and outcomes. He was a renaissance scholar in that his earlier work addressed not only basic mechanistic questions, but also studies in general gastroenterology and endoscopy.

AGA Institute gratefully acknowledges AstraZeneca for making this award possible through a restricted grant.
