Our first Journal Club was hosted on Dec 4, 2021, at 6pm EST. This was a resounding success, exceptionally well organized with good audience interaction and sufficient time left for questions and answers. We made sure to finish within the hour. Our special thanks to AKMG members Dr. Surya Suresh and Dr. Johnson Thomas for their excellent and informative talks. This would not have been possible without the valuable contributions of mentors Dr. Rajan Krishnamani and Dr. Madhu Balakrishnan. We also thank Dr. George Varghese for his input on the statistical methodology during the preparations.

Guest speakers will bring in different perspectives and open our minds to various career options for health care workers.
