Dear Fellow Pediatrician Friends; Greetings from Ahmedabad.
I am extremely happy & proud to send this 1st message as President of our organization, “Academy Of Pediatrics, Gujarat”.
“ Team work is the ability to work together toward a COMMON VISION.The ability to direct individual accomplishments
toward Organizational Objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain Uncommon Results ”
“GIAPCON 2017” The 43rd Annual State Conference of Academy Of Pediatrics, Gujarat, was the result of this TEAM WORK. I sincerely express my heartfelt gratitude for each & every member of “The Organizing Committee” for extending their whole Hearted support in last one year to make this conference a mega success. More then 700 delegates, 6 Pre-conference workshops, 15 National faculties, 40 state faculties (Many New faces introduced), Total 9 Credit hours, Amazing international venue, Gala Musical evening and many more. These became possible due to untiring efforts by all Organizing Committee Members for more then 365 days.
The central theme for the conference was “Healthy Child, Happy Family, Harmonious Nation”, which depicts our endeavor to enhance Health of each and every child born in our country. “Encouraging a culture of learning and the Integration of evidence into Practice”, is taken as core value while designing the scientific program and we had taken care to include topics from Neonatal to Adolescent age.
I am really thank full to all the Participants of the workshops as well as of the conference for turning out in huge numbers and make this event a mammoth success. We are extremely thankful to UNICEF Gujarat for their unconditional support for all our academic activities & providing a platform for the Public Private Partnership.
For the coming year as President of Academy Of Pediatrics, Gujarat, I have thought of few action plans. These will cover programs for Pediatricians, Paramedical staff as well as all the stakeholders of the Child Health. I request all the pediatrician friends to actively participate in all the activities happening during year 2018. Let us all together make our vibrant state of Gujarat “The Best State Chapter”, for the year 2018.
Last but not the least, I am thankful to almighty God & My both Parents for giving me ability and strength to work towards my goals and accomplishing all the achievements. My Wife, Neha and My Son Siddharth require a special mention. Their unconditional love & support allowed me to work hard for the academy for last more then 9 years. They are my backbone. I am sincerely thankful for ,“who they are” in my life.
