Boston Scientific to Donate $1 Million to ASGE's IT & T Capital Campaign to Build a New State-of-the-Art GI Training Center
Date:6/24/2011

Oak Brook, Ill., June 24, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) Foundation has received a pledge of $1 million from Boston Scientific to ASGE's IT & T Capital Campaign, a fundraising project to construct a new facility that will provide cutting-edge technology and training capabilities to significantly optimize current educational opportunities.  Boston Scientific's donation will be made in increments of $200,000 annually over five years.

"Boston Scientific is our first corporate partner to pledge funds for ASGE's new Institute for Training & Technology, and we are grateful for their generous donation and for recognizing the importance of building a focused and interactive learning environment that will continuously improve physician performance and patient care," said Gregory G. Ginsberg, MD, FASGE, President, American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. "The world is constantly changing, and opportunities for evolutions in gastrointestinal endoscopy must be seized and maximized. This facility will provide an unparalleled anchor location to foster the development, training and adoption of new techniques and technologies as they apply to gastroenterological endoscopic management of digestive and related disorders."

ASGE has been providing learning opportunities at its current Institute for Training & Technology (IT & T) in Oak Brook, Ill. The new facility will be situated on a 3.5-acre plot in Chicago's Downers Grove suburb, close to both O'Hare and Midway airports, and will serve as the global home of endoscopy, offering a full range of medical training and continuing medical education (CME).
