Members of the Connecticut State Medical Society have elected a Wilton-based gastroenterologist to be the physician organization's new president.

Claudia Gruss, elected during the society's 226th annual meeting last week, takes over for Dr. Steven Thornquist, who recently completed his one-year term.

Gruss, a Norwalk resident, is a gastroenterologist for the Western Connecticut Medical Group and has been an advocate for women physicians and organized medicine throughout her career, the society said in a statement.

She has held a number of leadership roles within the medical society, the Fairfield County Medical Association and the Women's Medical Association of Fairfield County, and is also a member of the American Gastroenterological Association, American College of Gastroenterology and the American College of Physicians.
