Diabetes Research & Welfare Association - the journey starts

Our organization started on a very humble footing on 7th September, 2011 as an informal get together of only 4 participants to discuss cases. It was preceded by huge medical camp where more than 500 people participated and thereafter CME on case presentation with Dr. Bijay Patni, Dr. Siddartha Mukherjee, Dr. Arijit Sinha, Dr. Sankarwala as participants was held at Hotel Downtown, VIP Road, Kolkata.Since then every month we have been conducting CME on regular basis. Slowly participants started increasing and on 27th & 28th April , 2013 we held our 1st Annual conference at PunyaLakhsmi, Diamond Harbour924-South Parganas). It was huge success & a definite feeling for the medical fraternity in that area. At least 20 life members of our organization attended & participated in this CME.
