Message from the President
“Working in the medical sector in a third world country is both challenging and rewarding. Socio-economy plays a big role in our decision-making. A world where PET scans and MIBG are norms; blood tests are still out sourced to our neighboring country. Endocrine is a subject where science is not absolute and balance for clinical judgment is imperative. We at DEAN have set out to make the most of what we have to serve the community best with all we have. Together we strive to fight the barriers that forsake our patients from the care they so deserve to see the smiles and ever so grateful faces to make diabetes and Endocrinology Care accessible, affordable and preventable.”
Dr. Dina Shrestha
DEAN is an active member of SAFES. Five national professional organizations came together in January 2013, to form a regional association viz South Asian Federation of Endocrine Societies (SAFES). This federation comprises the National Endocrine Societies of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka. It has been formed with the objective of developing a forum for Endocrinologists of this region to enable them to meet and interact regarding endocrine problems specific to this region, establish consensus statements and thereby develop strategies for targeted and appropriate management. It also aims to provide a unique platform for budding endocrinologists to enhance their skills while sharing their knowledge and experience.
We are also looking forward to soon partnering up and joining the International Society of Endocrinology
