Committee members meet daily during the Annual Meeting and attend all scientific and abstract sessions to evaluate each presentation. 

Awards for Diseases of the Colon and Rectum (DC&R) are selected by the DC&R.  Research Foundation of the ASCRS awards acknowledge up-and-coming researchers and the leaders that significantly impact young researchers.
