The Annual Conference of the Indian Psychiatric Society,
We had more than four thousand psychiatrists attending
It was declared as a green conference and in place of the usual mementos for speakers, six hundred saplings were planted, at Turahalli Reserve Forest.
The forest department organized a memorable function on the day before the event. The Indian Psychiatric Society is the first professional organization to take this initiative and I hope more will follow! Additonally, all the conference halls were named after birds!
Kudos to Dr R Raguram, who is theProfessor & Head of Department of Psychiatry, at Kidwai Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS), and his fellow-physicians. We hope other organizations will follow this trend!
