Dear SSPP members & collegues,

Greetings from the SSPP secretariat!

It is an honour for me to communicate with you all through this platform while serving SSPP (Society for study of Pain, Pune) in the capacity of honorary secretary. Last couple of years have been really dynamic for SSPP, considering huge comeback after CORONA pandemic. SSPP continued our academic meetings in the form of online webinar. We conducted ‘USG Hands on Chronic Pain workshop’ on 17th October, 2021, at Bharati Hospital, Bharati Vidyapeeth (deemed to be) University Medical College, Pune. With the untiring efforts of Team Bharti & SSPP members, it turned out to be great academic feast for delegates all across the world. The workshop was planned as Hybrid workshop, offline as well as Online, by following all the COVID protocols. EC meetings were conducted on the ZOOM platform so as to continue the society work in spite of restrictions to physical meetings. In May 2022, we conducted AGBM with new EC committee taking over the privilege to work for our own SSPP. With this we declared our first one day CME on “Recent Updates on Craniofacial Pain” in association with Painex.
