President’s Message

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is my privilege and honor to serve as the President of the New York Society for Gastroenterology and Endoscopy (NYSGE) for 2024-2025. I am humbled to be included in the list of my esteemed predecessors in this role. 

New York has become even more of an epicenter of the field of Gastroenterology and the NYSGE has been home to New York’s most talented gastroenterologists for nearly half a century.  Our organization has played an important role in the growth of gastroenterology and endoscopy by having so many GI thought leaders within the ranks of our Society. The NYSGE remains the premier regional GI society in the country.

Our Society remains laser focused on expanding and diversifying our membership to provide a home to those interested in all aspects of gastroenterology and endoscopy. Along with the NYSGE council and committee volunteers, we are working hard to provide enhanced resources and educational opportunities to all our members as we continue to advocate for our profession.

Our Society’s mission remains centered on advancing excellence in gastroenterology and gastrointestinal endoscopy, funding GI research and teaching endoscopic skills to enhance professional development and optimize patient care. We are very excited to be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Society this year and are planning a Gala to celebrate in the Fall. I hope to see you all there. 

I encourage you to get involved in the NYSGE, its mission and educational activities. It can truly make a difference in our patients’ lives. 

Please reach out to me with any suggestions or thoughts about how to improve our Society and keep it moving forward for the next 50 years!


John M Poneros MD, NYSGEF

President of NYSGE
