Dr. Richard D. McKenna was an outstanding clinician, scientist and humanitarian whose enthusiasm and knowledge drove the establishment of the CAG.  To honour him, the CAG each year selects an individual who has made significant contributions to gastrointestinal medicine and/or science to give the Richard D. McKenna Memorial Lecture.  This award is the highest honour the CAG bestows.  The lecture is the highlight of the opening of Canadian Digestive Diseases Week™ (CDDW™).
