Dear Friends

The 2nd East Zone NEOCON & 24th Annual State Conference of Neonatology Society of West Bengal will be held from 20th - 22nd November, 2020 in Kolkata. The workshops will be held from 20th - 21st and the main conference will be on 22nd. Keeping in mind the ongoing pandemic, COVID-19, the conference organised by Neonatology Society of West Bengal will be hosted online. The theme of this year’s event will be “Neonatal care: time to think long term”. It will be an academic extravaganza on the digital platform where eminent faculty members of national repute, including the National President and the Secretary of National Neonatology Forum (NNF), will talk about their daily experiences and practice, intensive care and recent advances. The webinar will be attended by delegates and dignitaries from different parts of West Bengal and eastern part of the country including the North Eastern states.
We would like to extend our gratitude to each one of you for your never ending support in the past. We are hoping to receive the same amount of love and trust and looking forward to your active participation and support in the forthcoming online conference.

Thanking you
Team NEOCON 2020
