We are in the middle of the 2013 and are here with a lot many things and changes.
In the team, Dr K Satyanarayana has handed over the reins to Dr M. V. Jali after tirelessly contributing towards the cause of Geriatrics both physically and intellectually.
Dr M. V. Jali has ably demonstrated his capabilities by organizing the 9th International Congress on Geriatric Care in Belgaum, & would surely take society higher & higher during his presidency this year.
The new president elect Dr Satish Gulati promises to push forward towards promoting the Indian geriatric cause with more gusto.
We are continuing with our prestigious Indian Journal of Geriatric Care successfully which has seen its maiden year concluding smoothly thanks to the editorial team & contributors. Let me take this opportunity to invite all the members to contribute and share their rich experience in the practice of geriatrics with their fellow care givers by writing articles (original and review), case studies etc. The editorial team is always available and ready to extend its support and assistance in formalizing an article.
We have also joined hands with OCT and are becoming a part of Geriatric Information Centre. This will be a unique platform for disbursing information to both medical and non medical people on issues ranging from medical aspects to social, economical, legal & financial.
GSICON 2013 (10th International Congress on Geriatric Care) in association with Influenza foundation of India has been announced and will be held in New Delhi on 16th – 17TH November 2013. This is the time of the year when we all meet and share our views and experience to carry forward the torch of the Indian geriatric cause. I along with the rest of the organizing committee call upon each and every member to come and be present physically and make this congress a grand success by not only sharing their experience but also by helping in formulating various strategies for our Indian Geriatrics.
