Message from President

Dear fellow members,
I am delighted that the Delhi Chapter of the Endocrine Society (DES) has finally been established. The capital has a long history of running the Endocrine Club, initiated under the patronage and guidance of Prof MMS Ahuja in the 1990s. This has been a lively academic forum, impeccably conducted by Prof Nikhil Tandon, where we met periodically to present research and discuss difficult clinical problems. However, it remained an informal gathering- more like a ‘club’ than a society.

Over the last 10 years, Endocrinology in the NCR has grown rapidly. The capital area is now home to more than 80 endocrinologists. This breed of endocrinologists brings updated knowledge, fresh ideas, and youthful energy. They provide top class endocrine service across the NCR. It was time that we had a “Delhi chapter” of the Endocrine Society of India. DES was formed and formally launched in first half of 2022 with the stellar efforts of Dr Saptarshi Bhattacharya and his team. Dr S. K. Wangnoo was kind enough to accept the mantle of President for the first year and led the society to a spirited start. In the first year of its existence, DES hosted a hugely successful conference (DESCON), held at an incredibly short notice in April 2023. The DESCON 2024 is planned for November 23 and 24 and will be hosted by the Max group of hospitals.

The Endocrine Club meetings were formalized and the DES was entrusted with organizing the meetings. The first physical meeting after the pandemic was held in April 2024 and was attended by more than 50 doctors, something that had never happened earlier. Not only that, in its very first year, the Society raised enough money to sanction 5 research grants for endocrine postgraduates.

It is a great honour for me to hold the office of the President of DES this year (2024-25).

I will do my best to encourage and support my colleagues to take the Delhi Endocrine Society to the next level and make it the most vibrant ESI chapter in the country.
