In closing, our new president Nicholas F. LaRusso, is a distinguished physician-scientist, a devoted mentor, and a talented administrator. He has contributed immensely to the field of digestive diseases from different capacities with consideration and fairness. Given Nicholas' defining characteristics and values, it is easy to predict that his AGA/AGA-I presidency will not be a "Cult of the President" but one of "stewardship," with adherence to the organization's strategic plan. The governing board of the AGA/AGA-I will not only be well organized and productive but warm and cohesive under his leadership.
