Hello, SNACC newsletter readers!

Welcome to our winter edition. I am excited to share that we have added a new section- the Wellness Page- ‘Beyond Anesthesia-A Wellness Initiative’. Here, our members can share achievements/ activities / hobbies outside of their job commitments including photo shots, wood carvings, cartoons, paintings, sports, adventure, other creativities.

Immediate Past President – A Hero

Dr. Chanannait Paisansathan

This is a story of an extraordinary effort and dedication by our own society immediate-past president, Dr. Chanannait Paisansathan.  Her significant contribution was highlighted on the recent news article where she managed to save a precious life of a woman on the Michigan avenue on the Labor Day. Without a delay, Dr. Paisansathan performed the CPR, knowing that time was of essence for the woman who had collapsed on the street and was pulseless. The lady recovered well without any neurological squeal.  We wholeheartedly applaud and recognize Dr. Paisansathan’s timely intervention and heroic efforts. This is a proud moment for the entire SNACC community. You can read all about it on

Three cheers.

Creativity on Canvas

“I believe, every day is a good day when you paint.” ― Bob Ross.

Beyond Anesthesia, I have been up to something exciting- a painting on canvas using just 3 colors, white, black and my favorite Prussian blue. I borrowed some glitter from my daughter for the shiny stars. I call it ‘Nomad’, where a wanderer travels with his camels on a beautiful night with only glimmering gems for direction and a dancing circle through the clouds to light his path as he makes his way over the dunes.
