Know your president – Dr. Suvarna Joshi (2019-2020)

It gives me a great pleasure to introduce Dr. Suvarna Prasanna Joshi who was born and brought up in an Army family background. Due to frequent Army transfers, her schooling was done in different Convent schools and Kendriya Vidyalayas.
She did her graduation and PG from the prestigious B. J. Medical College, Pune and also worked with Dr. Shreekant Kelkar in the KEM hospital. She got her training for Refractive Surgery from Optimax Laser Centres, UK and from Dr Arthur Lim, Singapore.
She is practicing as a Refractive Surgeon at the National Institute of Ophthalmology, Pune since 1995.
Her family includes her husband Prasanna, who is a Chartered Accountant, Son Parashar, daughter-in-law Shruti, grand-daughter Nihira and daughter Apoorva.
She loves to socialize, meet people, go out on trips, read, listen to music and generally enjoy life too. She is a voracious reader, who loves gardening, singing and dancing. In her early days, she was a sportsperson playing basket ball, volley ball and athletics. She is always dedicated to her job and proceeds in an organized way towards her objective. She is a good stage personality and loves birds and animals. She has an effortless way of communicating her thoughts to everyone.
I wish her all the best for her tenure as President, POS 2019-2020.
With regards,
Dr. Subhash Bijlani
