I have been actively associated with Andhra Pradesh Ophthalmic Society since the combined state of Andhra Pradesh. After the separation of the state last combined conference was held at Rajahmundry in which I have played a key role along with Dr Sambasiva Rao in the formation of the present Ophthalmic society.,
I served in different capacities as managing committee member, Joint secretary and president of the Guntur Ophthalmological Society.
I have been actively encouraging young ophthalmologists as a prof & HOD Ophthalmology Guntur to enrol as members of our ophthalmic society.
I have organized several CMEs and have been guiding the postgraduates for producing scientific paers. In my opinion the society must actively work to alleviate preventable blindness and actively associate the nation program for control of blindness. APOS has to bring the scientific advancements in the ophthalmic surgery to reach the common man.
I will try to encourage postgraduates and budding junior doctors to actively learn the advanced tenchniques and utilize for the betterment of common man.
The government of Andhra Pradesh will be launching the prestigious Kantivelugu program for screening children and entire society which is a noble activity and we are going to extend our active support in whatever the way the government requires.
I am extremely happy to take over as the president of APOS in this historical city of Kakinada and in the premises of rangaraya Medical College.
With best regards
Dr. Menda Parni Kumar
