New Year Message!
31 Dec 2020
This is a personal note, on behalf of the executive of the Indian Chapter of IHPBA, to thank you all for your efforts and all the work done in what has been a washout of an year worldwide. While we can look forward with more optimism to 2021, I would like to highlight some of the significant work done by our chapter and it’s members. While we missed meeting each other in person, we had a series of 6 webinar’s that were very well received nationally and beyond. The world congress of IHPBA 2020 was a successful virtual event in late November and I had the honour to be the program chair for this event that was attended by more than 2400 delegates. A large number of Indian faculty did a fantastic job and am grateful to all of them for showcasing our work to the world. More importantly, we were among the top 5 nations of the world in terms of abstract submissions and delegate registration. This shows the kind of commitment and passion that is expected of our HPB community.
We have managed to delay the annual meeting to August 2021 and we hope to have a full meeting under the leadership of our secretary Prof. Dr. TD Yadav and his team from Chandigarh. The website is open and I would encourage you to participate with your customary enthusiasm.
I once again thank you for your support and wishing you and your near and dear ones a very Happy New Year 2021!!
Prof. Dr. Shailesh V. Shrikhande
President, Indian Chapter of IHPBA
