Dear Prof Banerjee,
I should like to congratulate you and your colleagues for starting The Journal of Clinical Diabetology. It is appropriate that India with one of the largest population of patients with diabetes should strive to be at the forefront of education and research in diabetes.
I would be pleased to be a member of the Advisory Board of the journal. I wish for great success for the journal and bless it for the good that it will bring to the diabetic patients in India and Southeast Asia.
With best wishes,
Professor Harold Lebovitz
