"GyPSI (Gynecologic Pathology Society of India) was formally launched as a subspecialty society in Kolkata in February 2023 (the backdrop was the BAGP-TMC CME meeting) in February with pathologists including Drs. Radhika Srinivasan (PGIMER), Dr. Sandeep Mathur (AIIMS), Dr. Santosh Menon (TMC), Dr. Divya Midha (TMC), Dr. Bharat Rekhi (TMC)and Dr. Srinivas Mandavilli (Hartford Hospital) forming a core group along with Dr. Raji Ganesan from Birmingham. ISGyP was well represented with their leadership including Dr. Joe Rabban who was there in person, and Drs. Matias-Guiu and Naveena Singh made remarks virtually at the inauguration. It was lovely that the inauguration happened under Dr. Naveena Singh's watch at ISGyP. Dr. Srinivas Mandavilli delivered the keynote address (Update on IHC in Gynecologic Pathology) in the session that included cutting edge lectures by faculty from India, US and Europe. The creation of such a society is a first for India in this subspecialty and opens up numerous opportunities for bilateral collaboration. In the attachments is the GyPSI logo and a video animation of the logo launch at the conference."

This was a first Pathalogy Virtual Conference that was being held in the midst of COVID crisis and complete with Poster Sessions - Original Studies/ Case series & Case Reports.

AIPNA's breakfast session on Tuesday, September 24, 2019 during CAP's annual meeting was a phenomenal success. Our new President, Anil Prasad was the master of ceremonies.

The line up of speakers was spectacular. Rajal Shah spoke eloquently on Intraductal cancer of the prostrate, Mitual Amin talked extensively about spindle cell lesions of the breast and Nirag Jhala gave a lucid presentation on cytopathology of of pancreatic lesions.

The Indian breakfast with chai and samosas was a big draw. Bharati Jhaveri was awarded the "Friend of AIPNA" award.

The function ended with a touching eulogy by Nirag Jhala for our dear departed friend and colleague, "Jasvir Khurana". Many pathologists have contributed to Jasvir’s fellowship fund in an effort to remember Jasvir's support to upcoming pathologists.

The event could not have been possible without the generous support of CSI medical laboratories, Atlanta, GA and APS Medical billing company, Toledo, OH
