Maria Cino: 2017 Canadian Association of Gastroenterology Fellow (CAGF) distinction
The Canadian Association of Gastroenterology Fellow (CAGF) distinction is an esteemed honour for CAG members who have demonstrated long-term commitment to the Association and to furthering the goals of advancing GI practice and research in Canada. This honour will thus be bestowed on a small number of CAG members each year. This award is not meant to detract from the CAG Distinguished Service Award, which is aimed at a single person, typically with national or international recognition.
