Due to the pandemic we will have a virtual ceremony to recognize our youths who have taken an important step to promote Jain Values of giving back to the community.  Shobhaben Vora, BOD Chair will hand over the awards. Community presence, blessings and encouragement will go a long way for an ever-lasting impact in their life.


Recognition of COVID Frontline Professionals

Despite the hardships and health risks, frontline healthcare workers continue to do their jobs during the COVID pandemic. Since March, healthcare professionals – doctors, nurses, pharmacists, lab technicians, EMT etc. belonging to JCNC extended families are providing lifesaving services to local communities. We will hear their firsthand experience on COVID.    

Dr. Nitish Badhwar, MD, Professor of Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine; Parveen Jain, PhD and author of pioneering book on Jain religion “An Introduction to Jain Philosophy” and Dr Pankaj Vij, MD author of best seller book “Turbo Metabolism: 8 Weeks to a New You” will share their experience and thoughts on the COVID and lead us thru the recognition ceremony.
