The first ‘Doctors for Clean Air Conclave’ was organised on September 6, 2020 and had over 2400 doctors from 25+ countries register for the event. Seeing the success and positive impact of the first conclave, we are thrilled to organise the conclave again this year with the National Medical Associations. The ‘Doctors for Clean Air Conclave’ is a virtual event by the doctors and for the doctors. It will focus on highlighting the importance of doctors in acting as Clean Air Champions, the role of medical associations in engaging doctors across India, and the health impacts of air pollution. The conclave have sessions focused on actionable steps doctors can take in this regard, their achievements and aspirations and how they can use social media to engage with the masses.
