Dr. Nikhil Guhagarkar

Dr. Nikhil Guhagarkar, our FOM City Chapter Leader from Mumbai attended the New Horizons GIST Meet 2014 in Zurich and has been invited to this year’s New Horizons GIST Meet to be held in Miami, USA.

Here is what he has to say about it.

“It was my privilege to attend the New Horizons GIST Meet (May 2014) in Zurich.

It was an amazing eye-opener in terms of getting to know the cutting edge information and technology in GIST diagnosis & treatment.

The best of GIST Specialists from around the World including oncologists, surgeons and pathologists gave in-depth knowledge on GIST.

It was a 4-day intensive conference In Hotel Belvoir overlooking the beautiful Zurich lake.

Not only did we get to gain knowledge on GIST but were also treated to very fine Swiss Hospitality.

I utilized my knowledge from the meet to help FOM launch a section on GIST in the FOM website & create more awareness in patients and doctors for the same.

In continuation of the same, I have been invited to New Horizons GIST 2015 Meet to be held in Miami, USA in May 2015.

Hoping to get more on updates on GIST that can help the Indian GIST community better.”
