First and foremost, I would like to extend our warmest welcome to all delegates to our very first virtual congress. As the COVID-19 pandemic still grapples the whole world, uncertainties lie ahead of us as our lifes turned tupsy turvy and will, I believe, remains so in the months to come. Adapt we must, failure is unacceptable. Thus, this long awaited 8th PENSMA 2020 Biennial Congress, which has been cancelled once, suffered another blow as the resurgence of COVID cases recently put a stop once again to all major physical activities. My heartfelt appreciation to all the organising committee members,the scientific committee led by our Vice President, Dr Vineya Rai, and our secretariat for their hardwork to pull off this virtual platform. Hence,we humbly present the 8th PENSMA Biennial Congress 2021 Virtually.
Clinical nutrition is accepted worldwide as a significant specialized clinical field but is rarely given its due attention. The overall impact if ignored, on healthcare economics and outcome, is just devastating. Therefore, it is only befitting that all stakeholders in patient’s management can work together towards fulfilling the huge gap in this very specialized clinical area. The theme EVOLVING CONCEPTS AND TRENDS IN CLINICAL PRACTICE specifically serves the participants with topics that are current and of clinical importance in our daily practice. I hope this virtual meeting will enable more participants to join at the comfort of your home or working environment. I wish all of you a fruitful two days of virtual congress. Stay safe.
