LOCAL HONORARY CHAIR
Dr. Robert Berger, 2018 Gutsy Walk Local Honorary Chair
We are pleased to introduce you to Dr. Robert Berger, our Honorary Chair for the 2018 Gutsy Walk for Crohn’s and Colitis here in Greater Moncton.
Dr. Berger received his MD from Dalhousie University and completed residency in internal medicine and gastroenterology at Dalhousie University. He then completed a fellowship in endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) at the Montreal General Hospital. He is a gastroenterologist practicing at the Moncton Hospital with a focus on endoscopic ultrasound. However, with the growing number of people being diagnosed with Crohn’s and/or colitis, along with the existing number of people who already suffer from these diseases, his practice is a busy one. As with any specialist in medicine, it’s important for Dr. Berger to stay on top of all the newest studies and information regarding all things GI, which is why he is actively involved in education on both the local and national level and currently sits on the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology (CAG) Education Committee and is the co-chair of the Canadian GI Residents In-training Program (GRIT).
His attention to detail, his compassion for his patients, and his willingness to help people who struggle with the daily challenges our IBD patients face is why he was nominated by a grateful mum who has seen how all of these traits are responsible for helping her son achieve remission with his Crohn’s disease.
Come out June 3rd at the Chocolate River Station for this year’s Gutsy Walk and help us to #MakeItStopForLife
