A Nigerian Pathologist, Professor Olusegun Ojo, has been elected President of the Africa-Middle East Association of Gastroenterology (AMAGE) at the Association’s 7th Congress, which took place in Cairo earlier this month. AMAGE is one of the four regional bodies that together constituents the World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO), the global body of researchers doctors who specialize in the investigation and treatment of diseases of the digestive tract and the liver.
Ojo is a lecturer at the Obafemi Awolowo University and Consultant Pathologist at the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital, both at Ile-Ife. AMAGE is a conglomerate of National Associations of Gastroenterologists in Africa and the Middle East. Until last year, Ojo was the President of the Society of Gasroenterology and Hepatology in Nigeria (SOGHIN).

In his new role, Ojo will oversee the activities of the regional body and work in conjunction with the WGO in elevating the standards of Gastroenterology practice as well as see to the training of more experts in the field in Africa and the Middle East.
