Social Media Committee

The Social Media Committee's purpose is to support and increase awareness of the mission of The American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons as the world's leading authority on colon and rectal disease through social media outlets. The committee aims to help health care providers who have an interest in diseases of the colon, rectum, and anus achieve high-quality patient care by providing interactive venues for discussion, information, and education regarding all aspects of colorectal disease.
