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 Om Charitable Trust 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.
