World Digestive Health Day

May 24, 2017

The World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO) are commemorating the 45th anniversary of their creation on Monday.

On 29th May 1958 in Washington, a group of well-respected gastroenterologists came together in Washington and decided to form the WGO.

President Henry L. Bockus along with other esteemed gastroenterologists agreed on the desire to form a truly international organisation for gastroenterology that had
been discussed since the beginning of this specialism in the early 19th Century.

As a way to celebrate the work of the organisation, the WGO arranged for an annual World Digestive Health Day to be held on the anniversary of the first meeting.
