GI Nurse and Associates Week

In light of all the news about the CRE outbreak that has occurred, it might be easy to overlook the hard working professionals in the GI Department. These passionate professionals specialize in one of the most demanding disciplines.

March 23-27 is GI Nurses and Associates Week. I just wanted to take a moment to recognize those that are dedicated to the safe and effective practice of gastroenterology and endoscopy. To all of you that work in GI, enjoy your week!
