In February, ASGE's Governing Board approved a five-year Action Plan to advance Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in GI. The goal of ASGE's plan is to be intentional and collaborative in enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) regardless of gender, age, religion, racial/ethnic group, sexual orientation, or disability status throughout the Society, our profession and patient care initiatives. Join us for a webinar to learn about the details of the plan, initiatives underway, and to participate in a dialogue on ways ASGE can enhance its DEI efforts.

Optimal Viewing Experience on GI Leap
Because all browsers continually roll out new versions and updates, it is not always practical to point to a particular browser as "better" than another. Because browsers are free, you can easily shift from one to another for various purposes. Whatever browser you are using, here are some tips for better streaming and viewing of ASGE videos:

  1. Close other applications and browser tabs. This decreases the load on memory so your computer or other device can focus on streaming.
  2. Use a 5 GHz frequency if your router supports it. The common 2.4 GHz frequency is used by household appliances, so is more crowded. Avoiding it is like getting into the carpool lane on a freeway: smoother sailing.
  3. Use Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi if possible but GI LEAP is built with Wi-Fi in mind. 
  4. Monitor your internet connection. If your ISP has promised you 5MBps and you are getting only 1MBps, it's time for a phone call to your internet provider to sort that out.
