The North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, founded in 1972, is the only society in North America and the largest in the world, dedicated to serving the pediatric gastroenterology and nutrition community. NASPGN was established to advance the understanding of the normal development and physiology of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and liver in infants, children, and adolescents, and to foster the dissemination of this knowledge through scientific meetings, public education, and collaboration with other organizations concerned with pediatric gastroenterology and nutrition.
