We, as the alumni, are the foremost brand ambassadors and can play a vital role in the development of our alma mater with our ideas and suggestions. The alumni association could contribute in multiple ways. First, we can contribute to our alma mater through our expertise and experience. Second, we can connect with each other and think of how we can give back to our community.

Besides these, interactions such as case reports, review articles, and original articles and other initiatives would help the student community gain exposure and build successful careers.
