Cincinnati—Ralph A.

The AGA consists of 10,000 member gastroenterologists and gastrointestinal scientists and is the largest such organization in the US.

In his testimony, he discussed the problem of foodborne illnesses and infections and encouraged an increase in NIH research funding for this problem as well as cancers of the gastrointestinal system.
