The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy will honor James T. Frakes, MD, MS, MASGE, a UICOMR clinical professor emeritus of medicine, for being a trailblazer in GI practice management with two lectures presented in his name at the national GI Outlook 2022 Conference in Arlington, Virginia, August 13 and 14.

Dr. Frakes is a past president of ASGE and was a managing partner of Rockford Gastroenterology Associates, Ltd., for more than 20 years before his retirement.
