Congratulations to FSIE Intern Matt Glasgow on his first national podium presentation! Matt was an FSIE Summer intern in 2017 and a student coordinator in 2018. During his time with FSIE he has worked diligently on esophageal physiology research earning himself a co-authorship on the pH-MII ON medications project (Ward et al 2019). He continued this line of research, this time looking at pH-MII OFF medications and his efforts were awarded with a presentation at the Foregut Physiology Session at the Annual SAGES meeting in Baltimore. He took the podium today like a pro presenting his project entitled "The Utility of MII Testing in Making Surgical Decisions". Matt will be graduating from Bates College on May 26th after finishing his thesis on "The achievement of cultural competency: addressing concerns for healthcare compliance amongst African immigrant patient populations in Lewiston, Maine" and plans to take a year working for a nonprofit in Denver that provides outdoor activity opportunities to cancer patients. He will be applying to medical school in the fall! Way to go Matt!
