Dennis J. Ahnen Outstanding Service Award

There is no one more fitting to receive this award than Brandie Heald Leach. Her leadership and service within CGA are unparalleled. She was the Chair of the Abstract Review Committee from 2013-2021. In this role, she foundationally shaped the research program at the annual meeting, such that CGA is now recognized as a premiere international forum for Hereditary GI Cancer Research. In addition, she served on the Executive Council from 2011-2017 and was the first Genetic Counselor to serve as President of the organization in 2016. Her legacy of selfless and servant leadership has shaped the rigor of research presented at the CGA-IGC meeting and has profoundly strengthened the society. Learn more here
