I compliment the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences (FoMHS), Symbiosis International (Deemed University) SIU, for organizing SYMHEALTH 2024, National Conference on Interdisciplinary Approach to Healthcare.

It is befitting that the University would convene an event that marks the significance of integrating ideas and information from across many disciplines. This is in consonance with our guiding mission of forging a nationwide understanding through quality education.

The Faculty of Medical & Health Sciences aims at promoting an innovative interdisciplinary model for both education and training of healthcare professionals. We believe that the act of expanding and disseminating knowledge must not be an insular activity, limited to the institution. It must be debated and contested with peers in academia, the industry, and beyond. I am confident that all stakeholders in health sciences will find opportunities to be heard, to learn, and to collaborate in the upcoming Conference.

I invite you to join us in making the Conference a success.

It is my pleasure to invite you to attend SYMHEALTH 2024, an interdisciplinary Conference organized by the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences (FoMHS), Symbiosis International (Deemed University) SIU.

The Conference brings together many important strains of the healthcare domain and it is quite appropriate that it is hosted by Symbiosis which has championed the values of academic excellence since its inception.

The theme this year is ‘National Conference on Sustainable Healthcare Systems for Population and Planet Health' It underscores the importance of applying the integrative strategies to the theory and practice of health sciences. One needs only to consider any one of the urgent public health issues, such as diabetes to grasp the achievable gains that accrue through a collaborative and trans-disciplinary approach. The Conference will highlight some such contemporary issues in healthcare that cannot be discussed insularly and beg the context of a wider discourse.

As well as participating in the Conference, I hope that you will take time to explore the historical city of Pune and the scenic locales of our University campus at Lavale. This event promises to be a premier platform to showcase the innovation and dynamism in health sciences in a globalized world.

I wish the Conference great success.
