It gives me great pride to share with you all that our society has reached the fifth year since its inception. Thanks to our past presidents, secretaries and members we have definitely made progress in the field of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. The strong and solid foundation has been laid and the torch has been handed over to us. The mission of the new team with Dr Anshu Srivastava as Secretary, Dr Rajeev Khanna, Dr Vishnu Biradar, Dr Deepak Goyal, Dr Anurag Tomar as Executive Board members, Dr Srinivas and Dr Nirmala as treasurers will definitely strive to pursue the vision of promoting the discipline of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Hepatology. The agenda for the next two years is to disseminate knowledge related to our speciality by consolidating training opportunities, generating data of some important gastrointestinal and liver problems, develop consensus guidelines for management of common diseases and also increase awareness of certain diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease and some metabolic liver diseases which are being recognized more in the recent years.
It is my humble request that all the members of the society involve themselves actively so that the society reaches greater heights both nationally and internationally. Let the Torch of ISPGHAN burn brighter and forever.
President ISPGHAN 2018-2019
