Welcome to CODFI
It is a matter of pride for me to chair the Contact & Occupational Dermatoses Forum of India in the capacity of a President. I take this opportunity to thank all the members of the association for instilling confidence in me and electing me for this coveted post.
It will be my endeavour to promote, support and stimulate information about contact dermatitis and occupational skin diseases for improved patient care.
Chronic contact dermatitis has a dramatic negative effect on the quality of life of affected patients. My areas of focus will be to promote a better knowledge of contact dermatitis, improve the study of contact dermatitis in India by encouraging research on the subject, improve the quality of lives of our patients, reduce the impact of occupational risks on skin health, collaborate with authorities and Industry in the prevention of contact allergy and at the same time promote awareness of our sub speciality too.
A special emphasis will be on arranging conferences regarding Contact and Occupational Dermatoses and supporting symposia or conferences confined to themes of special interest.
I welcome suggestions from all our members for better improvement of our forum in all possible ways.
