    SSAT Foundation
    The SSAT Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract. Established in 2000, the Foundation supports the SSAT’s missions to develop surgical leadership in the art and science of patient care; to promote and support education and research on the diseases and functions of the alimentary tract; and to foster training and funding opportunities and scientific publications in support of these activities. The support contributed by SSAT members and grateful patients over the past decade have redounded to the benefit of the welfare of surgical patients around the globe. Your investment in the Foundation will help today’s surgeons create tomorrow’s advances in patient care. The SSAT Foundation gave out 161,500 USD in Traveling Fellowships and Awards at the inaugural Foundation Awards Reception on May 17, 2015. Together, let us raise over 160,000 USD more in support of next year’s awards. Donate today and visit the new SSAT Foundation webpage for more information!
