Dear LAP members, it gives me immense pleasure to interact with all of you as the President of this prestigious organisation. LAP is committed to comprehensive knowledge enhancement of our pediatricians and imparting quality service to the society.
My endeavour will be to carry forward the torch and project LAP as the number one branch of IAP with the cooperation and support of all esteemed LAP members.
