    I am happy to inform you that our CCEBDM course has been received very well by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and Prof. Abdul Basit, Director, Bagai Institute of Diabetology & Endocrinology (BIDE), IDF Centre of Education, in Pakistan has also sent a mail praising our course. We had a telecon of all the IDF Centers and they were amazed that in India we have been able to make such rapid progress in training doctors in diabetes.

    I have been a facilitator and moderator for more than 10 certificate courses on Diabetes. Three of these ten courses were conducted by overseas universities of international repute. However, without any second thought I can say that from the point of content, lay-out of course and its supervision hit CCEBDM is the best of all. Congratulations to PHFI and Dr Mohan's Academy for bringing out such a wonderful course

    I suggest this programme should reach at least 70% of the doctors practicing at India; that means this CCEBDM should be continued for at least another 10 years. With the combined effort of PHFI manager Dr. Sandeep Bhalla & Dr. V. Mohan's education academy, I hope we can really achieve the goal what we have aimed at. I wish all success for future programmes as well.

    I am short of words, to describe the efforts taken by Dr. Abhay Saraf and the entire team of CCEBDM with special reference to Dr. Sandeep and Dr. Nivedita, who have tried their level best to co-ordinate the nation-wide activity with fullest of dynamism and enthusiastic approach to the entire programme.Off course, Dr. Sanjay Zodpey's efforts and leadership qualities one needs to mention separately. I, wish many best wishes to the entire CCEBDM team and PHFI and Dr Mohan Academy for this pioneer nation-wide educational endeavor.

    Diabetes has been quite a happening topic these days and I feel proud to call myself a Diabetologist! But..alas! what we know about it is just the tip of the iceberg! And to know the rest I look upon to your certificate course of evidence based Diabetology. Thanks to PHFI who came up with this marvelous course to enlighten us and serve us better. And we have Dr Apurba Mukherjee and Dr. Ashish Kumar Basu as the Course Coordinators who are nothing but the jewel of the crown! We look forward to create a better tomorrow with this 'Knowledge to Action'
