We are pleased to announce that Corey Siegel, MD, MS, has been named the Inaugural Director of the Center for Digestive Health at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.

The prize is awarded to IBD clinicians, surgeons, researchers and/or academics with extraordinary track records of achievement, making exceptional and pioneering contributions that transform IBD care. There are just two awards give nationally each year.

Corey has focused his career on improving the digestive health of patients in our region and beyond through clinical care, research and quality improvement. He received his medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine and completed his residency in internal medicine at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center where he also served as chief medical resident.
