The year that was - Greetings from the President, ASOMA

Dear Esteemed colleagues,

Greetings from ASOMA..!!

Last couple of years have been challenging times and have changed this world to a new normal . In Spite of all these challenges ASOMA stood firm on its resolve to update the global audience with the recent advances in breast care. Many successful interactive webinars, virtual CMEs, MDTs, Skill workshops and a landmark ASOMACON-2021 ( hybrid congress conducted at BALCO Cancer center Raipur Chhattisgarh-India that was attended by more than 1000 delegates) in collaboration with ESSO, Central Eastern European Breast cancer Consortium, Breast Global, ASI-Chhattisgarh , American College of Surgeons-India chapter and Gurukkul of Surgical Education ) conducted successfully.

Nearly 100 new members from across the globe joined the mission that is ASOMA in the year 2021 and more applications are pending approval with the credential committee . The effort is to take ASOMA to every breast specialist in Asia and globally and we are moving with very definite intent, resolve and direction. . Building up to yet another landmark Congress ASOMACON-2022 at Jaipur October 2022 (as announced during the annual GBM at Raipur ) , we have regular academic activities lined up for almost every month (the first web series on Phyllodes will be starting in January, Breast cancer awareness walk is planned on 8th March 2022 (International women`s day) at Dehradun Uttarakhand followed by the first breast CME and MDT in March that is being conducted at KGMU Lucknow).More academic activities are lined up and you are most welcome to visit your website for more and regular information regarding many academic, social and all activities of ASOMA.

"It gives me great joy to wish you and your families Merry Christmas and A very Happy New Year 2022"

Sharing with you some joyful academic moments during ASOMACON-2021 and also some wonderful sightings during our visit to Kanha National Park , a paradise not too far from Raipur (had great joy in visiting kanha for my wild life photography immediately after ASOMACON-2021).
