Dear Senior members and friends,
Firstly, I would like to thank each one of you for indicating faith in me as the Secretary of IFAS. I feel this is a great privilege, and a huge honour for me to get an opportunity to serve our society. This also brings in great responsibility. I on behalf of our President and the entire EC, assure you that we would try our best to live up to the expectations of all the IFAS members.
IFAS has evolved into a very dynamic society and this evolution has also raised the expectations, we have seen that in the active and record participation in the last IFAS elections. This showcases the strength of our society.
Recently concluded IFASCON 2022 was a huge success with a good number of registrations and abstract submissions. The scientific program was very well laid out and it received appreciation from India and abroad. The quality of scientific work showcased in the conference showed our core strength in research. After having been associated with IFAS for a decade, I can say that the quality of research being done now is of global standards. The best part about this development is that, this is not confined only to a few centers, but is being carried out by passionate researchers spread all over the country. Collaborative research is the way forward and this term shall be the era of starting that. The work done by the collaborative research groups is going to stimulate many more to get involved so that we can find answers to questions unique to us. With many young, bright and aspiring students showing keen interest in our specialty, as highlighted by the number of members being added to IFAS, I can see this happening soon.
The IFAS website shall now have something for everyone like physician's, patients and IFAS fellows.
For all round inclusive development of any society, it is important to get constant feedback from the stakeholders. I would look forward to your active participation and please send me your suggestions, comments and critique at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With warm regards,
Dr. Inderjit Singh
IFAS Hon. Secretary
