Presidents Message
Dear Colleagues,
The Indian Association for Bronchology is an interdisciplinary society dedicated to provide excellence in education and clinical research in the fields of Bronchology and interventional Pulmonology.
The field of Respiratory medicine and interventional pulmonology is advancing rapidly with emergence of newer diagnostic and therapeutic modalities in interventional pulmonology and specially, Fiber-optic bronchoscopy, EBUS, Thoracoscopy and Bronchial Thermoplasty.
It was a privilege to be associated with IAB as president. During my tenure, I have tried to do my job sincerely to uplift the status of IAB. There were numerous workshops all around India in which various basic & advanced diagnostic & therapeutic procedures were demonstrated by national & international faculties.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the members of Governing council and specially the Hon. Secretary Dr.Pratibha Singhal for her efforts for the betterment of the society. Since its inception in 1995 IAB has shown tremendous growth in the form of membership, quality of academics, conferences and standard of workshops.
I hope to meet you all in Lucknow in February 2019 for the 24 rd Annual Conference of IAB. The faculties, invited are highly eminent Indian and foreign speakers, to present the best possible knowledge. The Hands on workshop will be unique and well designed to provide individualized training and understanding various modalities in the field of interventional pulmonology. I wish that all delegates as well as faculty will have a good and memorable experience and add to their existing knowledge.
I wish a great success to the Indian association for Bronchology in its future endeavors

With warm regards & best wishes!
DR. SURESH KOOLWAL
