Message from the President

Dear DRS Family,

We have been busy with program planning and finalization, and I am glad to be in touch with you all again! Hope you are all getting ready for the Thanksgiving Week!

Now that the abstract submission is over, we are getting prepared for the finalization of the results, program and the social activities for the next meeting. We had a record number of abstracts submissions. The DRS-2019 meeting is getting closer, and registration is going on well. Please avail of opportunities towards membership renewal and meeting registration.

Next year, we have  a new program called, ‘Lunch and Learn Sessions’ at the 2019 meeting, and these are ticketed sessions, intended to develop into special interest and focus groups. This is limited to a small group of no more than 30-40 people, as these are interactive sessions like workshop style sessions. It is our hope that clinical and research collaborations will evolve, which will result in scholarly activities. Experts in the field will be running these sessions.

On a different note, every year the ESSD runs a survey on dysphagia diagnosis management and sends it to countries all around the world. DRS is a logical partner to these efforts on increasing dysphagia awareness. The aim of this survey is to increase awareness of dysphagia, encourage the use of the ICD to improve the visibility of the disease and to collect information about normal practices in different countries of the world. I urge the members to use the link and respond as deemed fit during the World Swallowing Day/Week among the people that are screened from December 10-17, 2018. The link is:

Stay tuned for the full DRS-2019 program which will be out soon!


Best wishes,

Sudarshan R. Jadcherla, MD
President, DRS 2018-19
